With a history of continued expansion, growth remains on the agenda as one of LUKATEC’s key goals. The expansion of the plant, located in the city of São Leopoldo in southern Brazil, started at the end of 2016 and will be completed in May 2017. With this, the brand will expand its productive capacity to meet the increase in demand in recent years. Against the background of this news, LUKATEC continues to work on new developments that will be announced soon.
As a symbol of its market evolution and its credibility vis-à-vis its public, LUKATEC has started to adopt the slogan "Approved by the Major Manufacturers. Favoured by Retreaders ".
