Lectra, the technological partner for companies using fabrics and leather, has announced the appointment of Akihiko Tanaka to the role of managing director of Lectra Japan. With more than 30 years of experience, Tanaka now will support Lectra's Japanese fashion, apparel and automotive customers as it is undergoing transformations related to Industry 4.0.

"Japan’s automotive industry is one of the most important in the world: its ecosystem radiates internationally. I am proud to promote Lectra’s solutions, designed to facilitate the co-ordination of all actors in the production chain, whether they are based in Japan, the ASEAN countries, Europe or North America," said Akihiko Tanaka.

"Japan is also a land of fashion, which benefits from an active local market and also has a strong position on the world stage. Our solutions, rooted at the heart of our customers’ transformation, enable them to respond rapidly to both the digitalisation of their respective industries and to their evolving relationships with consumers," added Tanaka.

"Akihiko Tanaka’s international experience, and his robust knowledge of technological professions, is a major asset to reinforce our value proposition," said Daniel Harari, Lectra chairman and CEO. "The major challenge facing our Japanese customers is accelerating development cycles for their products within a fast-evolving automotive market and a fashion industry on a quest for greater agility."
