The move follows Lawo’s acquisiton of the majority shareholding of Innovason in April of 2008 (click here to read the full story).
The release states that relocating the manufactuering process to Lawo's new state-of-the-art facility from Innovason's HQ in Plougoumelen, Brittany was a result of the growing demand for the Eclipse digital console. Innovason now has full use of both of Lawo's production facilities.
Innovason’s product manager and customer service director, Hervé de Caro, explains the benefits that will be passed on to Innovason’s customers. “With the increased demand for Eclipse, we had reached the limits of our manufacturing capabilities at our own premises in Plougoumelen,” he explained. “The move to Rastatt will significantly increase both the speed and efficiency of the production process. We will also be able to take advantage of the fact that Lawo actually manufactures many of its own components, which are naturally of the very highest quality. As a result, the finished product will be of even better quality than before.”
Innovason’s international sales director, Marcel Babazadeh, commented: “Lawo has one of the most sophisticated production facilities in the world, combined with extremely knowledgeable and experienced staff. I am delighted that we are able to benefit from these facilities, which means that our customers will benefit too. When you combine the resources made available to us at Lawo with the vision and the creativity of the Innovason R&D team, I am confident that Innovason can look forward to a bright and exciting future.”
