High degree of quality thanks to professional staff
The quality principle is resolutely applied at LEONI. It is part of its corporate philosophy and is firmly embedded in all core areas.

Furthermore, extensive research and development guarantee for a high innovative capacity.

Tradition and progress since the 16th century
In 1569, a small Franconian wire factory laid the foundation for today's global player LEONI. At that time, Frenchman Anthoni Fournier began with a handful of staff in Nuremberg to produce finest gold and silver threads, known as Lyonese wares, for precious embroideries. His sons established additional production facilities in the area. From these beginnings, Leonische Werke Roth-Nürnberg AG emerged in 1917. Ever since, our company's ability to make changes and its fine sense for new developments both in the market and in customer requirements belong to the most important principles of the company, which was renamed LEONI AG in 1999. At the same time, solid values serve as orientation for acting in a predictable and responsible manner.
