(PresseBox) (Swindon, UK, ) The Software provider LuraTech has founded a new subsidiary in the UK, which is located near London. Gary Hodkinson has been appointed Managing Director of LuraTech Ltd., with more than a decade of experience in document and business process management.

The new subsidiary is part of LuraTech's drive to position its two major product lines, the LuraDocument PDF Compressor Enterprise and DocYard, at the forefront of the UK document conversion market. The LuraDocument PDF Compressor Enterprise is a production grade application for compression, conversion to PDF(/A), OCR, classification and form data extraction. DocYard from LuraTech is a complete platform integrating all the functions of document conversion in workflows, which can be managed centrally.

"We believe that our new UK subsidiary will make an important contribution to further growth of the LuraTech group," said Carsten Heiermann, managing director of LuraTech Europe GmbH. "Gary has a lot of valuable experience and a strong track record of successfully establishing companies in our sector in the UK market." Gary was previously at ActionPoint (subsequently purchased by Captiva and EMC), followed by roles in both Paradatec and Contempus.

Gary added, "LuraTech is well known for its leadingedge software solutions and outstanding support. With a local subsidiary we can develop direct contacts with customers and provide more personal support, which will be critical to our success in this region. We are already talking to major UK organisations and hope to be announcing our first successes in the near future.
