About Us

CECIMO is an umbrella organisation that serves the common interests and values of the European Machine Tool Industries and related Manufacturing Technologies at EU and global level.

Since 1950, CECIMO helps European machine tool industries and related manufacturing technologies defining the strategy to improve its leadership and global competitiveness, and promoting its development in the fields of economy, technology and innovation.

Our Industry needs adequate legislation, skilled workforces, innovation, proper financing, good supply chains and infrastructures to keep its prominent position. CECIMO responds to this exigence by keeping up with these fast-changing times and focussing on, amongst others, globalisation, sustainability, market surveillance, lack of skilled labour force and a long-term industrial strategy.

It gathers 15 National Associations of machine tool and related manufacturing technologies across Europe, representing 98% of total machine tool production in Europe, 1.500 industrial companies in Europe (EU + EFTA + Turkey) and 150.000 employees.
