2007/2008 – All the signs point to expansion
The LAPP is growing throughout the world – our largest production plant in Forbach in north-east France is being expanded to double our manufacturing capacity.
In the USA, the sales and distribution company K.L. Tannehill Inc. has become Lapp Tannehill Inc., headquartered in Savage, Minnesota. At our Indian site in Bangalore, the company is founding the LAPP Centre Asia. This centre allows us to present the company's branded products whilst also enabling comprehensive quality control and testing to be carried out. The company is even making its mark on distant lands such as Siberia – we are opening a new Competence Centre at the Polytechnic University in Tomst, Russia. This will allow LAPP to support electrotechnical training at the university.
LAPP is also constructing new manufacturing, distribution and logistics centres in Spain, the Czech Republic, Norway, Korea and Brazil. New sales offices, such as those in India and China to name just two, are offering our customers a greatly improved service on the ground.
