Leuze electronic Germany


A successful example of practical experience orientation

When the decision was made in the Swabian town of Owen in the early 60s to found Leuze electronic that would develop sensors for the company's textile machines, we didn't expect that the Southern German start-up would develop into the successful international company that it is today.

Today, it is a worldwide success story and stands for forward-thinking entrepreneurship as only few companies do. It's no accident that today Leuze electronic is considered a technology driver and is active in all growing markets with subsidiaries and a variety of distributors all over the world.
