LCS: customer-sized industrial automation
Forerunner of Industry 4.0, with solutions focused on automation processes, LCS is today, thirty years after its foundation, leader in the creation of innovative and reliable solutions with the aim of returning the maximum added value to the customer.
“We are intralogistics specialists – says founder and CEO Gianfranco Silipigni – and therefore everything that is moved within the factory, from handling to storage of material, can be managed and automated thanks to our proprietary software”.
Today, LCS is a structured company that operates in diversified fields in this sector: design and implementation of automated warehouses and material handling systems, airport logistics with baggage sorting and cargo warehouses, implementation of proprietary software, service and refurbishment.
“For us, the service and maintenance of systems are fundamental aspects of the service we offer our customers: this allows us to guarantee the perfect functioning of all the equipment, both in terms of mechanical and software aspects.
We have a 24/7 availability with the possibility to intervene immediately on the system in remote mode through a special app designed for smartphones and tablets.
Ours is a complete service that goes from the design of the automatic warehouse, up to the software. We also take care of the modernization-refurbishment of existing systems to make them more efficient and up to date”, stresses Silipigni.
LCS is able to offer the most suitable software package according to the most diverse needs.
“This is our plus – says the CEO – “because this is how we give life to the machines manufactured by our numerous international partners”.
With an average annual turnover of around 30 million, the company now has a widespread reach to Europe and the whole world thanks to the many historical partners who have embraced the corporate philosophy of LCS.
“You produce, we move”. As LCS says, customers appreciate it.
30 years of state-of-the-art innovation
2019 is a very important year for LCS Group.
It marks the 30th anniversary of the company’s foundation, back in 1989, thanks to the vision of Gianfranco Silipigni, one of the very first to believe in and focus on Industry 4.0 in Italy.
For the occasion LCS has expanded its offer with the establishment of a fourth company – 4NEXT SOLUTIONS – with the aim of further specializing the offer in the software for the industry.
This company joins the other 3, already part of the Group: LCS Management & Services Srl, LCS Spa, LCS Automation Srl. The head office in Usmate Velate in Brianza is now supported by a brand new sales office located in Rome.
A new marketing team was then formed to better manage a process of internationalization of the offer of LCS.
On the innovation front, it is remarkable to mention the recent introduction of AIV Robots, autonomously driven vehicles, equipped with artificial intelligence, capable of handling loads up to 1000 kg.
An innovative solution, which represents an evolution of the previous robotic models with ground current guidance (AGV) and laser pointing (LGV).
This solution is a further component of the integrated systems that LCS provides to build high-tech plants.
