Ledlenser – is a company of more than 1,500 employees at sites in Germany, Italy, Japan, China and Switzerland, producing a range of handheld torches and head torches unmatched anywhere in the world.
Many revolutionary products first saw the light of day in a garage. Such was the case of the first Ledlenser. When Harald and Rainer Opolka founded the company Zweibrüder Optoelectronics in 1993, they really didn’t have much more than a garage, an old Atari computer, a set of tools, a drawing pad and around 1,000 Deutschmarks of seed capital. But that didn’t stop them from turning many a night into day with their flashes of genius, working hard and dreaming of great success during a few hours’ sleep.
A dream that would soon become reality: Nowadays the former garage company is an international handheld torch and head torch producer, unmatched on a worldwide scale. With over 1,500 employees. Ledlenser is therefore continually extending their product and accessories range, scrutinizing even tried and tested ideas, and increasingly relying on sustainable energy sources. At the same time, responsibility is far more important to Ledlenser than shareholder value. That’s why they prefer to invest profits in training programs and company housing for employees in China, to get involved in social projects, and to foster ecological practices.
Ledlenser stands for unique innovations, top quality, environmentally-friendly technologies, as well as prizewinning design. And of course don't forget the fact that brilliant ideas can start small – such as in a garage.
