VITORIA-GASTEIZ, Spain, Aug 27, 2020 – Lantek, a leading multinational in the development and sale of CAD/CAM, MES, ERP software and a pioneer in the digital transformation of sheet metal and structural steel manufacturing has consolidated its leadership in the national and international market. This is reflected by the increase of over 1,100 new clients in their portfolio in the first half of 2020.
The growth is a new milestone for Lantek, reaching a total of 24,800 clients. This is a remarkable achievement considering it happened in such a complicated period marked by the COVID-19 pandemic and the strict measures taken by many countries to combat it. Productive activity in the metal transformation industry has been paralyzed or, at best, slowed down.
“We’re incredibly pleased with the market’s response to our new version, Lantek v2020. We appreciate the trust our clients put in us to grant their businesses continuity and make progress in their digital transformation,” explains Juan José Colás, Sales and Marketing Manager at Lantek. “We mustn’t forget that these results are the fruit of the effort made by the vast Lantek family. Both employees and partners have proven their professionalism and full cooperation adapting to the exceptional circumstances imposed by the pandemic.”
The regions with the greatest client growth in the first half of the year include China and Korea; followed by Europe, where countries in Northern and Eastern Europe have played a special role. Western Europe has maintained robust growth, especially in the last two months. In America, Lantek has also added new clients with significant solutions and projects.
