The manufacturer of precision tools and tooling systems from Oberkochen, Germany, presented itself from the 27 to 31 May 2019 at LIGNA in Hanover, the world's most important trade fair for the woodworking industry. More than 2,000 visitors from Germany and abroad took the opportunity to inform themselves about developments and innovations in the fields of tool technology, intelligent tool systems, digitization and services at the Leitz booth. With the successful course of the fair, the shareholders and management see the company confirmed and strengthened in its leading international market position and expect further positive development in the coming months, despite the economic challenges.
In addition to numerous innovations in the field of tool technologies, such as the resharpenable, diameter-constant profile tool system ProfilCut Q PLUS, Leitz also presented its „Solutions in New Dimensions“ in the new business field of digital services. The core of the fair presentation here was the service concept "LeitzXPert" - an online-supported platform that uses an app to deliver production-relevant data about the tools used directly to the user's workstation. Service intervals can be checked in the app or stock availability for tools and spare parts can be viewed. The quick contact to the personal contact person at Leitz at the push of a button is an additional useful feature offered by this digital service package.
With its presence in Hanover and the shown innovations, the company is positioning itself as a global solutions provider that focuses its efforts on ensuring that the maximum possible added value for the user is always achievable. „All of Leitz’s products, new developments and services are clearly aimed at optimizing the productivity, efficiency and flexibility of our customers, while always guaranteeing the high quality of the end products and the sustainability of the production processes. The numerous positive feedbacks at the trade fair and the great interest in our products and services show us that this is also seen and accepted in the market by the customers“, said Jürgen Köppel, Spokesman of the Management Board.
