Foreword

Taking responsibility for our actions and producing high-quality products are an integral part of LEKI. We were asked once: “Why are your repairing all of these old poles, that came back after many years of good service?” Our answer was simple, “Because it´s the right thing to do.”

Quality

Our products are jointly developed and manufactured in Kirchheim/Teck, Germany and Tachov in the Czech Republic, this eliminates lengthy supply chains and expensive procurement channels. This allows us to control all processes and to have transparency in the vertical integration of manufacturing. We use the most modern production processes and manufacturing facilities; our state-of-the-art technology enables us to manufacture products while conserving finite resources.

Durability

Our priority is to combine high performance with comfort and security. Our constant communication with experts and professional athletes ensures our exceptional level of quality. The result is intelligently designed products that customers can enjoy for many years to come. With over 250 patents, LEKI has registered more innovations than almost any other manufacturer in the outdoor industry.

Headquarters

We place a high value on renewable energies, which is why we installed the first photovoltaic system (Solar) in our Kirchheim, Germany location in 2005. As a general rule, we supply our entire energy needs from April to September with our own photovoltaic systems and even produce a surplus. Over the year, LEKI generates 7% more electricity than total energy consumption. This extreme electricity savings also noticeably reduces our CO2 emissions by over 33 tons of CO2 per year. In 2014, we installed an intelligent and highly efficient energy-saving lighting system. Since then, we have equipped our production and storage rooms with energy-saving LED lighting. With this sustainable investment, we have reduced electricity consumption from 27,040 kWh/year to 1,508 kWh/year.
