The current VDMA figures indicate just how important the Chinese market has become for precision tools. China is already the most important export trading partner for German manufacturers. Accordingly, the LMT GROUP is driving its international alignment in the form of a new sales office in Shanghai.
The Asian markets are of increasing importance for the LMT Group and the figures available make this more than clear with turnover in the region increasing tenfold over the past five years. One key element of this success is attributable to comprehensive support and consulting for customers as well as expert and fast service. Users should be able to find a competent LMT contact partner for their particular tasks - wherever they are.
The LMT sales office in Shanghai was opened within a festive framework at the end of last year.
Central base in the region
The fact that a new sales office opening in Shanghai is of particular importance in this context was already obvious at the opening event in November: around 200 guests took part, including representatives of LMT Management as well as many regional customers. In his opening speech, Dr. M. Zhang - General Manager of LMT China - emphasized the significance of the Chinese market for the LMT GROUP: "This new sales office gives us even better proximity to many interesting customers enabling us to react to their new requirements. It will be a base station for sales, technological know-how and service."
