Since its founding in 1949, Leister Process Technologies operated in the legal form of a sole proprietorship. Growth in the past few decades, diversification into additional business areas, and the formation of companies in the United States, Germany, China and Japan spurred the structural changes.
- Leister AG
will act as the holding company, responsible for the management and control of
the entire Leister group.
- Leister Technologies AG
will take over well-known business in the areas of plastic welding, hot air
industrial processes and laser systems.
- Axetris AG will replace the Axetris business unit, converting it into an independent company that will remain active in the areas of gas sensors and micro optics.
“This new corporate structure allows us to sharpen our focus in key areas, and successfully develop the future of all Leister activities,” says Christiane Leister, CEO of Leister AG. Existing company managers will lead the newly established companies with all properties remaining under the overall direction of Ms. Leister.
