Lectra Systems UK Ltd opened a new five floor office in Mayfair, London at the beginning of February for its UK sales and marketing operations.

The new office will be the UK headquarters for all sales and marketing operations for Lectra Systems UK while finance and service operations will remain in the Shipley office. The Mayfair office will also have training facilities for all Lectra software products (U4ia, Prima, Modaris/Formaris, Diamino, FitNet and Gallery) and a demonstration suite for demonstrating the e-prototyping solution which includes design, merchandising, digital printing and sample cutting.

Stephane Sallmard, managing director Lectra Systems UK, said: " A London office is needed to better support our expanding customer base in London and the South and to offer interested parties the opportunity to see how they can benefit from our products. We shall also be running Open Days for Colleges/Universities and workshops for our customers."

On March 9, Lectra is organising a 'Improve your Design and Manufacturing Processes' seminar in the new premises which will cover all new developments of Lectra design and merchandising software.
