Subsidiary United States

The success story of Leister in the United States dates back to 1961, when Leister entered the American market. Since then, the company has continuously expanded its presence through a rapidly growing distribution network in order to be closer to its customers.

In 2000 Leister further strengthened its market position in the United States by founding Leister Technologies LLC. With its location in Itasca, IL, additional offices in Tiverton, RI and Fremont, CA, a central logistics center in Schaumburg, IL, and numerous representatives throughout the country, Leister is always close at hand.
