Your market leader for 12V spreading technology – “Made in Germany”
Innovations for over 50 years. LEHNER Maschinenbau GmbH emerged from LEHNER Agrar GmbH, which was founded in 1956 by Josef Lehner. LEHNER is led today by the second generation, Helmut Lehner, whose vision and wealth of innovative ideas has made LEHNER Maschinenbau GmbH what it is in many areas today – the market leader for 12V spreading technology throughout Europe. The trigger to move into the development of a mechanical spreading solution, in addition to agricultural trade, was a regional snail and slug calamity that ravaged the regional agricultural industry in 1989. The result is well-known – a spreader operated by a 12V supply, with which slug pellets can be spread over a large area – the first SuperVario®. Gradually, the range of 12V spreading technology was expanded even further. Today LEHNER markets a range of innovative products that are sought after in agriculture, wine- and fruit-growing, as well as for winter road maintenance and special purpose machines mainly used in road construction. Since the very beginning at LEHNER we have concentrated on development and strictly supervised final assembly of our products, whose components are all manufactured in Germany to our specifications and fulfill the highest quality requirements. This way, only products with the distinction “Made in Germany” leave our company. This is just one of the reasons why the innovations from LEHNER enjoy such demand worldwide, and the export share of the spreading technology today is an impressive 37% – with the trend continuing upwards.
Our company was founded in 1956 by Josef Lehner in Westerstetten (north of Ulm) and operated as a small, family-run firm, as a sideline in agri-trade.
In 1980 Helmut Lehner, the son of the company founder, joined the agri-trade company, expanded it enormously, and continued to redevelop the company. As a result,the range was expanded in 1992 to the area of mechanical engineering and the marketing of 12V spreaders.
LEHNER currently employs around 30 people. LEHNER Maschinenbau GmbH, with its innovative 12 V spreading technology, is a market leader in Europe and intends to further enhance and underpin this position by continuously developing its product range.
