LEIFHEIT – 50 years of “always better ideas”
1959 marked the year in which Ingeborg and Günter Leifheit founded the company Günter LEIFHEIT KG in Nassau, Germany for the purpose of producing carpet sweepers and floor wipers. 1972 saw the company taken over by ITT, New York, USA.
From the very outset when the husband and wife team launched the LEIFHEIT brand now half a century ago, the focus was on one aspect - not just the product concept but also product benefits are the key to success.
At LEIFHEIT, engineering, ergonomics and quality have always formed an aesthetic unit and lead to creative problem solutions that make life easier. That is precisely the reason why LEIFHEIT products have featured for 50 years “always better ideas” and made life at home a little easier, more convenient and generally better on a day-by-day basis.
Since 1984 LEIFHEIT has been a public limited company listed on the stock market. Nowadays, with its well-known brands LEIFHEIT, Soehnle and Dr. Oetker Bakeware as well as its French subsidiaries Birambeau and Herby, the company numbers among the leading European suppliers of household products.
The company’s head office is in Nassau/Lahn, Germany and employs around 1,200 staff.
