Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials like fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials, has appointed Burak Susoy as director, Lectra Turkey and the Middle East.

Burak Susoy started his career in 1995 at Ricoh's Turkish distributor. He joined Lectra Turkey as a sales manager in 1999. He was later appointed as country sales director and general manager of Lectra's Turkish subsidiary. Burak Susoy served as the country manager for Dassault Systèmes in Turkey from 2012 to September 2015, according to a press release.

Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO said, “I am pleased Burak Susoy has returned to Lectra. He is in charge of a region with clear potential. Turkey is continuously strengthening. It has major entrepreneurs, considerable skills and an ability to develop quality products. Today, Turkey is Europe's second textile and apparel supplier and is a solid base for many automotive suppliers.”

Burak Susoy said, “Thanks to its growing expertise, Turkey has the capacity to remain a pivotal country for Europe. Our customers in the fashion and automotive industries are developing their leather and textile manufacturing facilities with the help of advanced technology. Their challenge is to be prepared for an expected rebound in a country that has all the keys for success. Modernising companies' processes will only reinforce their footprint in Europe.”

Fashion and automotive are two important markets for Lectra in Turkey and the Middle East, a region that has major assets despite an uncertain context. Lectra is increasing investment in these countries because it believes in local companies' potential for success.

Particularly in Turkey, Lectra's premium positioning aligns with its customers and their expectations. Many of these manufacturers are aiming upmarket, striving to reach a new level of excellence or developing their own brands. Their activity now covers the whole value chain, specifically design and product development. Product lifecycle management solutions, such as Lectra Fashion PLM, fit perfectly within the strategic plans of a growing number of Turkish companies. (GK)
