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, Support.

Christian Geißler, CFO Leadec:

Christian Geißler

"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 food & beverage. Our ambition is to reach revenues of 1.5bn € by 2022."
