Axe & Status bags new distribution deal

Milton Keynes-based Axe & Status – a specialist supplier of high-quality CNC machine tools, press brakes, fibre lasers, oil country lathes, and sheetmetal machinery has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with Italian machinery manufacturer Lazzati. 

Established in 1939 and with more than 2,000 machines produced, Lazzati is a leading manufacturer of heavy hydrostatic horizontal boring and milling machines. The business is based in Rescaldina near Milan where it occupies 25,000m² of factory space.

Axe & Status’ product line is extensive comprising: Tuscan manual and CNC lathes; Durma press brakes, fibre lasers, and fabrication equipment; Eumach machining centres; Massa vertical lathes; and Rolleri press brake tooling.  

Managing director Steve Thomas struck the deal after meeting with Lazzati directors at the Bi-Mu exhibition which took place during October last year in Milan. 

“We parted company with our previous boring machine supplier some years ago and have been looking for an alternative agency for some time,” he explained. “Lazzati fitted the bill perfectly; both parties are delighted with the new agreement.

“Lazzati is an Italian manufacturer of heavy horizontal borers and milling machines (floor moving column/’T’ moving column) and accessories. What really grabbed our attention was their excellent build quality which really shone through from the first time we saw the machines.

“Many of our customers are involved in heavy engineering in sectors such as general machining, automotive, aerospace, energy and earthmoving, and we believe the Lazzati range will be absolutely ideal for those applications.”
