September 27, 2012 - Lantek considers EuroBLECH to be the ideal place for building on its success in the German market where it has achieved growth of more than 40% in the first half of 2012, making it a strategically important business region.
Lantek is a world leader in CAD/CAM and MES/ERP software for the sheet metal and structural steel industry and will be demonstrating the latest innovations in its advanced software solutions on stand B63 in Hall 12.
The 22nd EuroBLECH which is to be held from 23rd to 27th October in Hannover is well established as the most important worldwide event for professionals from the sheet metal and structural steel industry. It will bring together 1,400 exhibitors from 40 different countries providing an opportunity for visitors to see the latest innovative machines, materials, systems and intelligent tools available in the industry and will give them the chance to select the equipment best suited to their needs for sustainable production.
EuroBLECH 2010 welcomed over 60,000 visitors and for Lantek, the 2012 show is a key platform for evaluating the new business and economic requirements and trends for a global industry. Additionally, Germany is a highly important market for the company. Lantek Germany has achieved a 42% increase in turnover during the first half of 2012 and now has more than 850 customers.
As part of its commitment to EuroBLECH 2012, nearly all the German staff will be at the exhibition including commercial, technical and support personnel, which will give both customers and people new to Lantek’s solutions the best chance of evaluating the innovative and revolutionary technology that company offers in an informative and collaborative environment.
Lantek has a long history of technological advances, which has given it in-depth knowledge of the needs and best practice of its industry. It has also built many long term partnerships with clients and machine tool manufacturers for their mutual benefit. Techniques developed in these partnerships provide valuable feedback to the company’s R&D centre enabling it to innovate rapidly and effectively and deliver the most advanced software to its worldwide commercial and technical network.
By offering a consultative approach to clients, Lantek’s team of professionals can select the most appropriate solution from its wide product portfolio. It can meet the needs of any scenario in sheet metal manufacture including sheet, tube and profile cutting by offering cost effective and innovative solutions that work in a real business environment. For structural steel applications, for example, Lantek can offer Lantek Steelworks which has been specifically designed for the needs of this industry sector.
