Lectra Systems

Lectra Systems develops software and hardware for organizations that use soft materials in industries including fashion and apparel, automotive, and furniture.

Lectra Systems manufactures cutting tables that either use a blade or a laser.

Lectra Systems has over 23,000 clients in over 100 countries. At Lectra Systems I was able to understand the meaning of being a global citizen because they communicate with people from all over the world. This means they are able to work in teams of very diverse cultures, opinions, and experiences.

I encourage every student to take advantage of an opportunity like this if they ever come across one. On this tour we networked with employees, experienced a global team in action, and visited the manufacturing facility to see first-hand where the product was made…If that’s not cool enough, we even got to see a demo of how the software they develop and the hardware they create work together to produce their clients’ needs.
