Lapp Group USA is the North American branch of a German wire and cable production and distribution company. They sell cables and connectors to original equipment manufacturers and distributors in industries including automotive, machinery, robotics, medical electronics, food and beverage, telecommunications, transportation, and more. They contacted Briteskies for their Magento Enterprise implementation and SAP integration project.

Lapp Group now has a Magento eCommerce site that is seamlessly integrated with their parent company’s existing SAP system and is optimized to handle Lapp’s various cut charges, surcharges, and pricing specifications.
