Our vision

We are the leading industrial service provider for the factory of today and tomorrow

Our comprehensive knowledge of the production processes and equipment in the manufacturing industry we have gained over decades is the basis for our smart services for smart factories. We are firmly established in the automotive industry. Now it’s time for us to utilize our expertise to capture general industries as well.

By 2022 we will have built up a strong platform for our digital growth, have sound and scalable business models for our balanced customer portfolio in mature and growth markets and be among the most attractive employers in our industry.

"Leadec is now a stand-alone company, with a strong track-record in automotive, but diversifying and growing in manufacturing industries such as aerospace, white goods and consumer goods."


Christian Geißler, CFO Leadec

Our strategy "Becoming Leading Edge"

Leadec's strategy is based on the vision of becoming "the leading industrial service provider for the factory of today and tomorrow“ –i.e. focus on manufacturing and differentiate away from automotive only with few distinct service lines along the clusters: Engineer, Install, Maintain and Support.

Leadec Digitalization

Leadec approaches digitization in its entirety using three steps:

  1. The fundamental modernization of the own IT infrastructure;
  2. The harmonization and digitization of the own core business processes including the touch point with the customer;
  3. Value-creating digital services and new business models.
