Cooperation focuses on customer-oriented solutions in the precision farming
Hungen/Zeulenroda-Triebes: LACOS Computerservice GmbH from Zeulenroda-Triebes and Reichhardt GmbH Steuerungstechnik from Hungen wish to combine their skills to offer their customers a full range of precision farming products.
LACOS is well known for its established innovative software solutions for major national and international manufacturers of agricultural technology.
The portfolio ranges from precision farming products, agricultural logistics and telemetry solutions to the development of customer-specific apps.
Reichhardt develops customer-specific electronic solutions for well-known manufacturers in agricultural and construction machinery technology as well as automatic steering systems and ISOBUS retrofit products.
With RTK CLUE, Reichhardt meets the demands of farmers and contractors for real-time correction data.
The two companies hope that cooperation will complement one another's own services and lead to the joint development of entirely new products with high customer benefits.
For LACOS, Thomas Damme and Stephan Hubrich (both Managing Directors): "We see the advantages of this strategic alliance with Reichhardt in combining the long-standing experience of both partners in their respective fields and the use of synergy effects in creating new products for the market and offering complete solutions for OEM customers."
Andreas Reichhardt, Managing Director and owner of the Reichhardt Group: "The combination of essential skills from the two companies will bring our customers faster, more powerful products and thus an even better market position combined with greater customer benefits for vehicles and attachments."
This strategic cooperation in the development of certain products has no influence on the independence of LACOS and Reichhardt.
