Investment rationale

Lantor has a strong market position combined with a diversified portfolio of end-users. The company has sufficient in-house knowledge and develops leading products for attractive markets. Significant growth is expected in the most important end-markets. The extensive R&D department delivers state-of-the-art solutions to customers and the company has a strong reputation with well known brand names.
