VITORIA-GASTEIZ, Spain, Feb 13, 2020 – The Europa Congress Center in Vitoria-Gasteiz was dressed up in multiculturalism, innovation and technology on 4th, 5th and 6th February to host the 2020 edition of the Lantek International Meeting. More than 170 attendees, most of them Lantek employees, as well as distributors and invited partners, met there and had the opportunity to know first-hand the results and assessment of the previous year, as well as the roadmap and business objectives that will reinforce the organization’s strategy in the coming years to consolidate Lantek as a global reference in the digital transformation of the sheet metal and metal sector.
As it is already a tradition, representatives of the different departments of Lantek attended the meeting, which is held every year: commercial, operations, technical support, R+D, IT systems, etc. coming from the different presences of the company in the world, from Korea to Brazil, India or Germany. Only the representatives of the company in China were absent on this occasion, but unfortunately, they could not attend.
The 2020 edition has been especially relevant because of the external speakers such as the trainer and technology disseminator Bart Farrell or the conferences and working group sessions carried out in collaboration with prestigious consultants such as Minsait (Indra group), JAKINCODE and OPE Consultants. In total, more than 10 technical, product, commercial and Human Resources sessions to guide everything that will come throughout the year 2020.
“In 2020 our strategy will focus as always on our clients and on the exponential development of our international installed base, making the digital transformation of our sector a reality, based on the most advanced manufacturing technology, as well as on operational excellence as a provider of solutions and services,” said Alberto López de Biñaspre, CEO of Lantek.
The company also took advantage of the meeting to announce last year’s economic results, which show the consolidation of its growth rate. In 2019, turnover stood at 21.1 million euros, an increase of 9.6% over the previous year, strengthening Lantek’s position as a leading company in software development and advanced manufacturing solutions for the sheet metal and metal sector.
