Great result at the Lowara factory in Poland

The celebration, held on 15th July at the Lowara Vogel Polska works in Strzelin, was a great success. It marked the achievement of the ambitious production figures of 160,000 GS Pumps, 150,000 PLM Motors and 10,000 QS Motors.

The event coincided with a visit by Giuliano Matteazzi (EMEA operation director) to recognise the progression of organic and qualitative growth by the Polish factory.

Example figures that confirm the factory’s positive trend of continuous improvement are 25% recovery of productivity to its credit in two years, an on-time-delivery rate of 97.6%, and an inventory turnover of 13.2%.

In addition, ISO 14001 certification in progress and the arrival of two new automatic lines in the near future confirm the factory’s current positive development.

The Polish factory has once again demonstrated that it has the skills and the potential to develop further and further, and above all to grow consistently in order to offer fast and effective customer service. This guarantees the standard of efficiency and high quality that has always distinguished Lowara and the whole ITT group.
