Yamazaki Mazak Corporation entered the North American market in 1968, opening its first subsidiary outside of Japan in Long Island, New York. Six years later, the company built its North American headquarters and manufacturing facility in Florence, Kentucky to meet the unique requirements of the region. Then In 1987, Mazak further expanded into North America by opening a service center in Mississauga, Ontario, to support Mazak machine tools sold to Canadian customers through local distributors.
