Leadec in Poland has its origins in the two companies Premier and Hörmann and is rooted in the automotive industry. The first customers included General Motors in Gliwice and Volkswagen in Polkowice. That is why the first two sites were established there. In 2001 a third site was founded in Poznań. Today, around 650 Leadec employees provide services to about 30 OEMs and first tier suppliers under framework contracts in Poland.
In addition, the team can look back on several hundred successfully completed projects. In Polkowice, for example, Leadec has its own workshop where machines are disassembled and reassembled for customers. Be it in Poland or abroad, the Leadec team has comprehensive experience in performing international relocations. This is also due to the close internal collaboration between the Polish team and their German colleagues in Chemnitz.
Expanding the service and customer portfolio
Leadec continuously develops its range of services further: “Automation and robotics are becoming increasingly important for our customers. To be well positioned in these areas, we have built up our own training center in Poznań where we train our employees. They can immediately apply their new skills in small-scale projects,” the Managing Director, Tadeusz Ceglarek, explains.
The company has further plans: “We transfer our many years of automotive industry experience so that other industries can benefit from our services, too. Target customers are mainly manufacturing companies such as appliance manufacturers and the aircraft industry. We are continuously expanding our portfolio and we have already won a few new customers from adjacent industries, says Przemysław Pendrowski, Member of the Board of Management.
Leadec is also very well prepared for the next 20 years. In a pilot project at a customer’s, Leadec is currently gaining experience with data digitization and analysis to predict anomalies and with the use of augmented reality for technical support. This may make it possible for Leadec specialists to support the customer’s employees remotely at short notice in the future.
