40th anniversary of Leuze electronic AG Switzerland

Leuze electronic AG Switzerland, which launched on May 13, 1981 in Brüttisellen, Switzerland, was the first foreign subsidiary of the Leuze electronic Group. This was an important milestone and step towards the internationalization of the company founded in 1963 in Owen/Teck, southern Germany.

Close by for fast support

Similar to the Leuze electronic Group, the Swiss service and sales company has been growing at an above-average rate for many years. More growth means more need for space. In 2015, the company moved into new facilities in Flurlingen, near Schaffhausen, Switzerland. Partners and customers of Leuze benefit from the proximity of the Swiss branch – especially in terms of service and for complex safety applications: the Swiss support and service technicians can be on site quickly with their expertise. The French-speaking part of Switzerland has its own regional support in French. “Our experienced team offers competent advice and reliable customer service in all parts of the country. This is what sets us – the Sensor People – apart,” explains Jean-Claude Schmid, Managing Director of Leuze electronic AG Switzerland proudly. Since August 2020, customers in Switzerland have been supplied from the new international Leuze distribution center in Unterlenningen, near the headquarters. The benefits are maximum availability, reliability, and fast delivery.
