Market leader in industrial seals celebrates its French centenary
Created in 1920, the family business managed by Mr Christian-Xavier Latty, pictured, the grandson of the founder, is now, a century later, the French market leader in research and innovation in industrial sealing.
Latty's products ensure that complex industrial processes stay perfectly sealed and today have become indispensable in many sectors such as petrochemicals, mining, nuclear industries and food processing.
The Latty Group has built a reputation for compliance with the strictest quality and safety regulations that guarantee product reliability, as well as for its expertise in the design and R&D of its sealing solutions and the constant evolution of its manufacturing processes.
In a very competitive environment, Latty makes the difference by staying focussed on service and listening carefully to its customers, as only a medium-sized company can, while investing each year 5% of its turnover in research and development.
In addition, the company has its own test laboratory enabling it to test its products under optimum conditions of use before market release or test them on the customers' equipment for qualifications or approvals.
Latty said: "One of the Latty Group's strong points is undoubtedly its ability to listen to its customers. Every business is different, every client is different with its own constraints, whether related to the environment, the size of the project or the deadline. The technical and commercial teams are there to ensure that customers benefit from this century of experience in industrial sealing when designing the appropriate solution in each case. The proposed product must meet the customer's expectations in every respect.”
