about cecimo

CECIMO is the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries. We bring together 15 national associations of machine tool builders, which represent approximately 1500 industrial enterprises in Europe, over 80% of which are SMEs. CECIMO defends the common interests of its members, particularly in relation to authorities and associations. It also promotes the European Machine Tool Industries and their development in the fields of economy, technology and science. CECIMO covers 98% of the total machine tool production in Europe and about one third worldwide. About 40% of CECIMO’s production is shipped outside the EU. It accounts for almost 150,000 employees and a turnover of nearly €23 billion in 2014.
