The Lecoimpex team organized a momentous celebration event in Târgu Mureș, to which the company’s coworkers, JTEKT Europe, partners and friends were invited.

Bartha Carol, the General Manager of Lecoimpex, made a brief presentation of the company’s start-up period, 1992-1996, when Leco began to distribute industrial spare parts.

Bartha Carol highlighted the fact that the good decisions, the high quality products and a valuable team led the company to success. He was also talking about the technical services the company offers to customers, services that come to complete the wide range of products LECO distributes.

The second speaker, Fodor Venczel, the Commercial Director of Lecoimpex, was talking about the company’s present and its future plans. The LECO team is full of new ideas and constantly innovates, this process leads the company to continuous growth. In 2019 LECO launched a new web shop with 60-70 thousand products, most of them with detailed technical description, which facilitates the buyer’s decision and act of buying.

Fodor Venczel also spoke about important news at the level of physical stores: „we purchased a new headquarter in Bistrița, where we implemented a new store model, the self-service shop. A Self-service shop makes the products more visible and it gives a better shopping experience for the customers. We also plan to buy a new logistic center in Târgu Mureș, which will offer the possibility to have another and bigger self-service shop and to have a much bigger warehouse than the current one.”

The last speaker was Eliade Rotariu, a special guest, business trainer and coach. He was talking about the crisis and resilience offering a series of useful tips for this complicated period of life.

Please be informed that Koyo Bearings has been officially rebranded to JTEKT Bearings as of April 1, 2022. For your information, this is only a change of brand. The company, its general structure, the products and services will remain the same.  Our customers can rely on the continued good service and quality of our products in the future and our commitment to keep the same excellent business relationships with our valued partners, as in the past.

Please take note that although the official date for this corporate brand change will be April 1, 2022, the actual introduction of the new JTEKT branded products and the phase out of the Koyo brand will be subject to a gradual process, far beyond this date. We expect that the full transition will practically take at least 2-3 years.

What is the relation between a covid virus and a roller bearing? Well, strictly there is no relation, at least not directly . . 

But surely to identify the covid virus, a massive amount of PCR tests needs to be done globally, every day. And to process all those tests quickly, increasingly automated laboratories are installed in many countries. Those laboratories need quick, smooth and reliable handling of the test materials. And here is where roller bearings come into play.

In the below linked article you can see how Koyo bearings (note: as of April 1, “Koyo” will be rebranded to “JTEKT”) are contributing with state-of-the-art bearings for such automated laboratories.
