The Amada companies

These are the Amada companies that I worked for:

  • U.S. Amada, a company selling Amada’s fabricating equipment.
  • Amada Laser Systems, which was a wholly-owned subsidiary of U.S. Amada, created by taking the laser people from U.S. Amada and a laser research group from Amada Service. It only lasted a few years. Research was disbanded, Optimo went to Service, and the rest went back to U.S. Amada.
  • Amada Service, a sister company of U.S. Amada that provided parts and service for Amada’s machines.
  • U.S. Amada was later renamed as Amada America.

U.S. Sonoike marketed CNC chipmaking equipment, and shared Amada’s showroom at various times. I never worked for them.

Amada Cutting Technologies marketed Amada’s bandsaws and blades. I never worked for them.
