Vector’s new Okuma MU-6300V 5-axis was needed to keep up with their consistent growth and need to expand its capacity.
Vector is known for their quick turnaround times, and Okuma machine tools help them accomplish just that.

“Okuma is a great brand. They run hard, tight, and keep running… that is why we have so many of them.” ~ Brandon Every, Vice President

“Here at Vector we take great pride in our designs and manufacturing of aerospace tooling. We absolutely love the reliability and precision of our Okuma products and we could not be happier. I would definitely recommend Okuma machines.” ~ B. Every


The Hartwig/Vector relationship started years ago when they purchased their first Okuma machine. Vector started with a previously-owned MB-560 and LB-25 II. Now on to their 15th Okuma machine purchase from Hartwig, their partnership continues to remain strong. Hartwig’s partnership means full support. Vector indicates, “that is what sets them apart from their competition.” Bringing established relationships together with both the builders and the suppliers is what keeps everyone on the same page from the beginning. Hartwig treats their customers like partners. The communication does not stop after the sale, they work pro-actively work together towards a solution.

“Hartwig provides great service. That is why we keep going back to them.” ~ B. Every

“We knew that partnering with Hartwig would get us out of the gate fast. And that is exactly what happened.” ~ B. Every
