Proven success: 250 New Generation Vectors sold

since February 2007

Paris, October 17, 2007 -- Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to the

soft goods industries, is pleased to announce the sale of its 250th Vector at the end of September from

the new range launched last February. Since January 2007, Lectra automatic cutter sales have risen by

40% compared to the same period last year.

"Such record sales, all markets combined, testify Lectra's

technological superiority on the automatic cutter market

and prove that the company made a winning bet with its

massive investment: three years of R&D with a budget of $15

million", said Daniel Harari, CEO, Lectra.

With the new Vector range, associating power and

intelligence, Lectra has made an unprecedented

technological leap forward. By combining unrivaled speed

and cutting volumes, it provides outstanding savings in

productivity, without compromising quality or reliability. The

operating software's advanced parameters optimize the system based on the material cut, the

complexity of the shapes or the operator's experience. The embedded smart maintenance system

detects needs for intervention and diagnoses possible failures before they occur. In addition, Lectra Call

Centers experts can take remote control of Vectors, ensuring maximum system efficiency and limiting

risks of machine downtime.
