This allows it to increase its operational capacity with respect to the facilities it already had.
The new offices in Katowice have a square surface area of 500m2 and its brand new, spacious, and innovative spaces are aimed at encouraging collaborative environments, representing a quantitative improvement for the local Lantek team.
The opening of these new offices is a boost for Lantek’s strategic investment in Poland, considered a key market for international development. The official inauguration was attended by Lantek executives and Tom Schneider, Managing Director Development at TRUMPF Machine Tools, who, with this visit, reinforced the TRUMPF Group’s commitment to Lantek’s international growth project.
For Alberto López de Biñaspre, Lantek CEO: “Poland is a key part of Lantek’s expansion plan as it fits perfectly into our R&D development plan in which we are immersed. The expansion of these offices represents a technological leap and complements our existing team so that Lantek can continue to supply software to the whole world, with the best quality standards on the market”.
Through this new work centre, Lantek will multiply its capacity for the development of software applications and solutions for the industry, while increasing its operational excellence by supporting the 20 international offices it currently has in 14 countries.
This way, the company continues its commitment to offering its innovative services to all its clients, focussing on ensuring the compatibility of its software with all types of cutting technologies and for all manufacturers in the market.
