“Bob and Tony bring high caliber experience as well as deep knowledge across multiple disciplines to our Board, and we believe they can provide significant contributions to the shared vision for Hardinge’s growth and market expansion,” noted Richard Simons, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Their combined operational and financial experience as well as their global exposure with large public companies should prove valuable to our strategy to continue to expand our global presence by capitalizing on the increasing world-wide need for high quality, reliable precision machine tools and to further our market penetration throughout all industries in both mature and emerging economies.”
