Global network

We are represented at more than 300 locations throughout the world and have built up a wealth of know-how. Thanks to our global network, our expert knowledge is available at all times and we can always offer the best solution. Our quality standards apply throughout the world.

Factory of the future

We are pioneers of the digital shop floor and partners beyond that. In the factory ecosystem, we play the role of neutral process facilitator. Our industrial services are digitalized, integrated, open, and IoT-capable. The acquired data form the basis for further services. We make the factory fit for the future.

Single source

We bundle our comprehensive services and offer everything from a single source. This reduces the number of interfaces and allows our customers to concentrate on their actual core business.

The factory as a system

We consider the entire life cycle of a factory. This also applies to the costs. Instead of treating the maintenance costs in isolation, we take them into account in the factory planning stage. With the total cost of ownership assessment procedure, we offer proven cost and efficiency advantages. 

First-class team

Our employees are service specialists in the factory and the associated buildings. They stand for excellent planning and execution of our services.

Digitized processes

Our Leadec.os business platform records our processes digitally throughout and forms seamless interfaces to the customer's systems. This creates maximum transparency in the planning and provision of all services. The acquired data forms the basis for optimizing processes – on the way to the "factory of the future."
