The 55-year success story of Leuze electronic began with the "cono-pack", an electromechanical packaging machine. With the development of what at the time was the world's smallest reflex head, the key step into the market of industrial automation was taken. Numerous innovations followed. For example, the ASi bus is a Leuze electronic invention, as is the safe ASi. Safety monitors of a wide variety of labels come from the production facilities of Leuze electronic.

The company was directly involved in the development of the I/O link and is also playing an active role as a driver and pioneer of Industry 4.0. Clear focusing and differentiation has turned Leuze electronic into an expert in usability, industrial interfaces and communication and connectivity. Today, the company's main focus is on the areas of intralogistics, the packaging industry, machine tools and the automotive industry, as well as laboratory automation.

The product range of Leuze electronic includes switching and measuring sensors, identification systems, solutions for image processing and data transmission and also occupational safety components and systems. Many years of double-digit growth have meant not only an increase in turnover figures, but also the number of employees. Today, more than 1,200 sensor people at 22 locations are involved in development, production, sales and service – supported by more than 40 sales partners around the world. Leuze electronic demonstrates its consistency in the creation of new jobs.

We are looking for specialists in all areas, from skilled production workers to product managers and national and international sales managers. Growth also means that more space is needed. Which is why Leuze electronic will continue to invest in new international facilities. At its headquarters in Owen/Teck, southern Germany, not only additional office space and new staff parking places are currently being created, investments are also being made in the production and logistics departments.
