Legris SA enhances its online catalog thanks to technology

CAD drawings of the leader in industrial connections have been available for free download from Web site since 2001.


Legris Connectic logoSaint-Romain, France, May 31, 2005 – In June 2001, Legris SA, the world’s specialist in industrial connections, valves and fittings, decided to entrust its project for CAD drawing downloads from its site to TraceParts S.A., a publisher of Parts Libraries based in Normandy, as part of its aim to widen its target user group and consolidate its leading position.

“Managing a download service for CAD drawings represents a huge workload for a component manufacturer: modeling and maintenance of drawings, management of the numerous CAD formats used, sending files, and so on. That is why two key points helped to sway the decision in favor of the TraceParts solution, the first being that its technology generates mechanical components in several CAD formats in record-breaking time, and the second being the modeling quality in terms of both the geometry and the information sent, especially the online Bill of Materials,” explains Guillaume Tétard, Services to Customer Manager for Legris SA.

Thanks to TraceParts, Legris SA saves precious time, enabling it to focus on the critical stages of its activity, as well as provide visitors to its site with an efficient and modern high-quality online portal. It stands as a real e-business site that helps to optimize market knowledge, while opening up new prospects for canvassing strategies.


In a sector where service is increasingly the factor that makes all the difference, our online offering puts us in touch with an even wider group of users, emphasizes Guillaume Tétard.


After more than four years’ experience, the overall result is more than satisfactory. Both partners agree that expectations have been greatly exceeded. The CAD download feature, through Legris online catalog, is a reliable and efficient multilingual service and covers all CAD systems on the market.


Legris SA consequently stands out with its online site, which has become “a benchmark in our business” in terms of both the content and form, according to Guillaume Tétard. In addition to offering visitors to the website high-quality CAD files, the download service has proven to be an effective tool for honing the company’s competitive edge. Some site users have become Legris SA customers after benefiting from the service.


It also increases the loyalty of site users towards Legris products; satisfied with the online service, they know straight away where to go for industrial fluid connection solutions.

We are obviously very proud of this partnership with one of the manufacturers whose CAD drawings are the most in demand from consultancy firms, explains Gabriel Guigue, Managing Director of TraceParts SA. It enables the thousands of people using our CD and Internet library to save precious time in their design work, while providing Legris with a wider distribution base and a higher profile. It is clearly a win-win situation for both sides.
