Leybold Chessington UK

Leybold UK

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

Our UK office is based in Chessington, UK where we have a fully equipped service workshop with five in house engineers who service a wide range of vacuum pumps, calibrate gauges and service our leak detectors.  In 2022 we opened our new extended SCREWLINE service line which gave us the capability of in-house repair and service of the larger portfolio of dry pumps.  This expansion meant customers no longer needed to ship pumps overseas for service and maintenance, thus reducing transport costs, lowering environmental impact, and improving lead-times, meaning a better-quality service for customers throughout the UK. 

We also have five field service engineers who support customers with service and maintenance of their vacuum equipment.  Whether customers have a maintenance agreement, or require ad-hoc support, our team will provide a reliable first-class service throughout your pump’s lifecycle, no matter where in the UK it’s installed. 

Chessington is also home to our Customer Care team which includes order processing and service administration.  The team can be contacted by email or phone Monday to Friday. Technical Support, Training, Marketing, HR and Finance are also based in Chessington.  Our Sales Teams are field based in locations around the UK and are out and about every day supporting customers with their vacuum requirements.

We are winners of the Composites 2021 Employer of the Year Award and in 2022 winners of the Composites Social Impact Award, showcasing our support for inclusion, diversity and wellbeing.

About Leybold

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.
