Lafert's winning formula, which confirms its leadership in the market, is continuous investment. A complete modernisation of the die casting foundry and palletising process includes a new state of the art anthropomorphic robot. Continuous improvements are being made to the flow line automation and the vertical integration of production processes. Lafert have also invested in its sales activities with a new stock of HPS range permanent magnet motors now being held in its central facility in Lyon.
A bold attitude is consistent with the company's history, this combined with its development programme has resulted in a solid growth in all of its production sites. The new Operations Manager, Tiziano Tedesco, explains "Lafert is a solid company with great growth potential, the growth interventions of recent years have made it intrinsically LEAN, thereby allowing for greater flexibility, reduced lead times, and high quality materials due to local control".
The Logistic/Supply Chain will be the target of further planned investments, aimed at reducing delivery times by using preventive planning techniques and department integration tools.
Once again, Lafert looks ahead with a great sense of responsibility. Confidence in the value of investment in production processes combined with responsibility toward its stake holders, clients and suppliers, maintains its reputation as a solid point of reference for excellence and quality.
