Company Profile

Leitz is one of the globally leading manufacturers of precision tools for professional wood and plastics processing. The Leitz Group currently employs 3,700 people who in 2007 generated sales of about 260 million euro. The core of the Group is Leitz GmbH & Co. KG in Oberkochen, Baden-Wurttemberg (Germany). Today, the original establishment founded in 1876 by Albert Leitz, is comprised of nine production facilities and 34 distribution companies as well as a global network of about 200 service centres.

Leitz attained its position in the global market by acting as a fair partner and with groundbreaking developments. Leitz considers basic technological research to be among the most important core activities required to continue to always be a pioneer for new solutions.


Leitz sees itself as its customers’ guarantor of functionality, process reliability and value for money. In addition to our comprehensive product programme, we also offer consultation services with which the company can make its decades of experience with tools useful to its customers. Besides supplying the tools, these consultation services also include administration including software and storage.

Leitz is also concerned with project and process engineering for economically efficient plant operations, keeps the employees of its customers up to date with training programmes on the latest findings in production engineering and networks the individual service modules for a comprehensive tool-process-management system.


The product spectrum includes the entire range of machine-driven precision tooling for machining solid wood, manufactured wood products and plastics. Our clientele includes industrial enterprises and craftsman’s shops in the wood and plastic processing industry, which use Leitz products, for example, in window and timber construction, in panel processing and in furniture making.


A quality tool can only do its job if it is serviced and maintained. Leitz therefore offers worldwide expert reconditioning of tooling to preserve their complete performance over the entire life cycle. A pick-up and delivery service complements this professional service and ensures that the customer can use his tools again as quickly as possible.
