The service provider is based at more than 250 sites, often directly at the customers’ plants and facilities.

Leadec’s global services comprise: Engineer (consulting and engineering), Install (electrical installation, automation, disassembly and reassembly), Maintain (production equipment maintenance and technical cleaning), Support (facility management and internal logistics) as well as other local services. The services are provided either in projects or permanently on-site at the customer's premises.


As technology is revolutionizing the factory, numerous players make factories smart. Leadec is a neutral partner, from a tech and machine perspective, and plugs into everyone’s ecosystem.

Leadec helps customers digitize their production processes and make the best use of the opportunities of Industry 4.0.

They look for new technologies which create a value-add for our customers and seek to offer them in a service model (e.g. AGVs).
