About us

With our comprehensive product line, we are one of the most successful suppliers of vacuum technology to the world market.

Since 1850, we have been developing and supplying vacuum pumps, systems, standardized and customized vacuum solutions and services for various industries worldwide.

Our evolution

Since our founding in 1850, Leybold has written its chapter in industrial history and, not least through the groundbreaking inventions of Wolfgang Gaede, founded the worldwide vacuum industry. From the first industrial applications in the production of light bulbs 100 years ago until today, we have reinvented ourselves again and again to adapt to the requirements of the global market.

Today, vacuum technology is a key technology that has become indispensable in many applications. Users can be found in all industrialized regions throughout the world, and we continue to count ourselves among the market leaders of this industry.

Our pumps and vacuum systems create the necessary production conditions for the industrial manufacturing of semiconductors, data carriers, displays, coated architectural glass and solar cells. Vacuum systems are used in the refinement of steel and the processing and packaging of food. Vacuum is also indispensable for the operation of mass spectrometers and electron microscopes as well as in almost all areas of modern research. At Leybold, our highly trained and experienced employees are the foundation of a comprehensive customer service. 

Our innovative products combined with our state-of-the-art production technology in a global manufacturing network all come together to form a successful business. A global service network with a multitude of service offerings completes our product line. Innovative, modern vacuum technology supports the megatrends of the global economy and thus contributes significantly to sustainable progress.

Pioneering products. Passionately applied.
