The History of Leistritz Turbinentechnik GmbH

In 1905, the foreman Paul Leistritz founded the firm of Maschinenfabrik Paul Leistritz in Nuremberg. The first products to be manufactured in a small workshop were blades and profiles for steam turbines. Following a tumultuous development in the field of power generation, Leistritz had already become a competent supplier for all important turbine manufacturers in the world by the 1930ies.

The works in Remscheid can also look back over a tradition spanning many years. A metal grinding works was founded in 1862. 20 years later, the first forging activities began. Turbine blades for stationary turbines and aircraft engines have also been manufactured here since 1960.

The works in Remscheid were taken over in 2005 as a specialist for precision forging to complete the manufacturing range of Leistritz in Nuremberg. These two locations can now offer all important manufacturing technologies: precision forging, CNC milling and grinding, hot and cold rolling, electrochemical processing as well as all kinds of surface treatments.
