CMZ Expands: New 22,000 m² Assembly Plant in Berriz to Boost Lathe Production

As predicted earlier this year, 2024 is shaping up to be a transformative year for CMZ with numerous projects and significant investments. A major highlight is the acquisition of a 22,000 m² site in Berriz (Vizcaya), where we will establish our eighth manufacturing plant. This new facility will focus on assembling our latest lathe model, currently under intensive development by our technical team. This expansion is part of our strategic effort to increase production capacity to 1,000 machines annually, with a medium-term goal of consistently producing 800 lathes per year.

Located in the Aboro district of Berriz, this 22,000 m² site, formerly home to Mendiguren y Zarraua’s stamping and pressing plant, will be transformed into a state-of-the-art assembly plant tailored to our manufacturing needs. The facility will include offices and become CMZ’s new hub, equipped with cutting-edge technology.
