The medium-sized manufacturer FATH Components presents itself with a well-rounded history at MOTEK 2019. This year, its main focus is on ergonomics at the workplace. By introducing the new product division 'FATH Lean 4.0' as well as the products 'Storage Tower' and 'Assembly Station' - both developed by its technological partner FATH ambos.io - FATH offers now an even more extended product portfolio.

Germany - Stuttgart 24.10.2019 - This year at MOTEK, the component manufacturer showed that the company is well positioned for the future. The 'FATH Monitor Work Station WALL' or the 'Monitor Suspension Arm SKY' give access to a new market segment. In addition to the classic components, ergonomic solutions that increase efficiency at the workplace and save space are paramount. One of these innovations are the luminaire and power components that can be integrated into workplaces. In combination with the friction joints presented at the last Motek, assembly stations that favor lean processes can be built easily. Supplemented by the 'Storage Tower', which FATH developed to market maturity in a technology partnership with ambos.io, an intralogistics solution visualizing the movement of operating resources within the company is available. This allows a lean process to be introduced. For its support and optimization, e.g. the 'FATH parking rails' can be used. This product is part of the new product divison called 'FATH Lean 4.0' which will be presented in spring 2020.

"MOTEK 2019 shows that we are on the right track with our portfolio," explains Stefan Kaiser, Head of International Sales, FATH GmbH Components and adds: "Our workplace solutions in particular attracted a lot of attention." Kaiser thus alluded to the queues of people in front of the workplace arms. But this wasn't the only reason why so many people visited the booth. The gaming table at which components could be tested and the 'Storage Tower' from ambos.io were also attractions for the visitors. Markus Feil, CEO, FATH GmbH sums up: "With the 'FATH CTM' and the 'FATH Lean 4.0', as well as the 'FATH components', we have a well-rounded story to tell through which we can enter market segments that were previously closed to us. For example FATH is not only benefiting from the partnership with ambos.io through its innovative technology, but rather this opens the doors to multinational companies which we would have reached more slowly with our classical sales work".
