VITORIA-GASTEIZ, Spain, May 9, 2023 – Lantek, leader in software for the sheet metal industry is delighted to announce the opening of a new office in Australia.

Headed by John Salisbury, who brings over 20 years of experience in the sheet metal industry, the objective is to offer first class sales and support to the over 180 Lantek users in the region directly from Lantek. Additionally, Lantek has formed a collaboration with Klugo, a distinguished provider of operational excellence in the sheet metal industry.
