Lafert have made this significant investment for two reasons, customer service and strategic placement.
The presence of Lafert in China is the answer to the increasing growth in manufacturing plants of important partners in this key region. The reduction in delivery times and transport/logistics costs will allow both parties a more advantageous mutual supply and a strengthened partnership, without giving up the recognised quality of the Lafert product, assured by the close connection with the mother company.
The Lafert Suzhou plant will produce brushless servomotors, permanent magnet synchronous motors and gearless machines for elevators, these represent the most interesting product ranges for companies in the region and show the most significant demand growth.
