The LMT Group has successfully established itself on the Chinese market over recent years. On 8 May 2018, Fette Compacting and LMT Tools officially began operations at a new factory and administration building in the city of Nanjing in East China. Some 500 invited guests attended the opening ceremony, including colleagues from the two companies’ other sites around the world. Regine Bengel, one of the owners, addressed a personal greeting to the employees of the Chinese subsidiaries: “You have transformed a German company in China into a Chinese company with German roots.”
The new facility in Nanjing was built in just under a year on an area of over 50,000 square meters. The LMT Group celebrated the laying of the foundation stone in spring 2017. The first machines were installed in December. End of January 2018, the new office and administration building was ready for occupancy.
The LMT Group has been active in China for over ten years. In 2004, Fette Compacting set up a production plant for its tablet presses in Nanjing. The Chinese subsidiary of LMT Tools commenced work here one year later.
