Following quickly on the heels of the first partner focus earlier in the month, we stay in Germany but move to the north, to Garbsen, a suburb of the historic city of Hannover, where we meet LAT Labor-Analysen-Technik GmbH.
LAT GmbH was founded in 1971 in Hannover as a general distributor of scientific equipment and laboratory supplies, working across both the research and industrial markets. Starting life as Raczek Analysis GmbH, the company morphed into LAT GmbH in 2006, growing steadily over the years and now employing 20 staff.
In addition to their large portfolio of scientific and laboratory instrumentation, and perhaps a jewel in their crown, LAT are masters at the production of customized glassware, employing a dedicated team of glass-blowers. At a time when the world of production is increasingly mechanised it's absolutely fantastic to have these skills in demand.
