MSC Industrial Supply Co. UK becomes a Renishaw Official Channel Partner

May 2023

Renishaw, one of the world's leading precision engineering and scientific technology companies, announces the appointment of MSC Industrial Supply Co. UK (MSC) — the UK's premier distributor of metalworking and MRO industrial consumables — to its official Channel Partner Programme.

The partnership agreement between the two companies sees MSC become a Premium Partner, providing access to Renishaw's portfolio of machine tool, co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM), styli and fixturing products. The company supplies metalworking, maintenance, repair and operation (MRO) and safety products with over 80,000 items in stock. Its newly built Technology Centre, located within their Wednesbury facility, has been designed to enable manufacturers to test new engineering methods for the production of parts without disrupting their own operations.

Luke O'Reilly, Renishaw Account Manager for MSC, explains, “It is a fantastic opportunity for Renishaw to partner with MSC to better support our customer base, as well as provide Renishaw's industry-leading metrology solutions and high precision equipment to new customers. We are committed to working with MSC to help customers reduce cost and improve productivity.”

Launched in 2021, the Channel Partner Programme aims to continually enhance levels of local customer service and product support throughout Renishaw's global sales regions. Partner companies are carefully selected on the basis of their sector-specific experience and expertise in a range of cutting-edge metrology and manufacturing disciplines.

Robert Hooper, Category Manager at MSC adds, “Renishaw is one of the iconic names in British manufacturing, and we are pleased to have joined their Channel Partner Programme. The partnership will result in increased technical support from Renishaw, including training for our engineering and sales teams to gain a deeper understanding of Renishaw's products. The MSC Technology Centre will also include Renishaw machine tool probing. This will allow our customers to not only see Renishaw technology in action, but the MSC engineering team will also use the technology when conducting customer projects to find time-saving and cost-saving processes for production.”
