Lumberg Opens up New Market Opportunities with a Factory in China

Sister company Lutronic buys connector manufacturer in Dongguan

Schalksmühle, 2021-03-10. For 88 years now, Lumberg has been developing and producing connectors and contact systems, electromechanical components, and mechatronic components of the highest quality for technical applications, especially in the business fields of automotive, home appliances, building technology, and mobile communications technology.

Lutronic, founded internationally in 2016, on the other hand, specializes in connectivity solutions for industrial automation. Its portfolio also includes high-performance feeding, testing and handling modules for special-purpose machine construction. The company operates in conjunction with the specific know-how of the Lumberg Group, as it was Lumberg itself that established the M12 circular connector as a global standard at the beginning of the 1980s. On this basis, Lutronic, as a sister company of the Lumberg Group, exclusively develops and sells high-quality M8 and M12 circular connectors for signal, data and power applications for automation applications.

The particular strength of the Lutronic Group in the automation business field is – in addition to standardized industrial connectors – the offer and development of customized special solutions for equipment manufacturers with high demands on quality and attractive prices. In doing so, Lutronic also offers regional variants in small series, which large manufacturers do not dare to approach.

This is made possible by the close cooperation that has existed since the beginning with TCA – The Cable Assembler, a company based in Dongguan, a city with a population of eight million. Effective January 1st of this year, Lutronic has now purchased TCA, which was founded by a German in 1994. The almost 300 employees will be taken over in full. The approximately 12,000 square meter production, warehouse and business premises are conveniently located just two hours from Shenzhen and Hong Kong in a center of the Chinese electrical industry. In addition to the Asian Lumberg sales locations in Shanghai and Singapore, which have existed for decades, the plant in Dongguan now also marks a footprint for the company’s own production via the sister company of the Lumberg Group in China.
