On 8 February, the new Leitz branch in Kaunas, Lithuania was officially opened by our shareholder, Dr. Cornelia Brucklacher, and Jürgen Köppel, Spokesman of the Management Board, in the presence of customers and partners. The new branch will serve the Baltic States in the future. The location also includes a service centre where carbide tools with a focus on circular saw blades are reconditioned in manufacturer quality. An extension for the reconditioning of diamond tools is also being planned.

With the opening of the new branch, Leitz impressively demonstrates that a high level of customer proximity worldwide and competent support with tool solutions and services are central components of the company's philosophy.
