Company history


In 1953 Otto Leiblein founded Leiblein vehicle construction manufacturing trailers and steel constructions. The company was initially located in Klingenweg 2 in Hardheim.

Junior director Dipl. Ing. Alex Leiblein took over the company in 1988. 23rd June 1988 marks the day the company is officially entered in the Commercial Register – since that day Otto Leiblein vehicle construction was Leiblein GmbH. The manufacturing of trailers was changed to plant- and apparatus production.

After completion of the new factory building, the company moved to the industrial area „Tiefer Weg” in Hardheim. At that time Leiblein GmbH comprised 8 employees. After a short period of time, the company expanded: In 1995 a painting and storage hall was build, followed in 1998 by a second and larger production hall. In 1999 a hall connecting the two existing halls was build and the painting hall was extended with a sandblasting section and a depot.

Since the company moved the personnel was continuously increased as well. The new office building, whose construction was commenced in 2002 has been occupied in mid 2003. Meanwhile the number of employees increased to 55. Furthermore, the company continuously invested into internal processes from construction to marketing to meet increasingly technical demands now and in the future.

In 2005 Leiblein GmbH launched a new business devision the Leiblein Mining GmbH. The subsidiary company develops and manufactures drilling and handling appliances for the mining and natural stone industry.

Leiblein GmbH - new production hall

In 2007 the construction of an additional 2400 m² production hall solved the spatial problems that have arisen. Equipped with six overhead traveling cranes, each with a hook height of 10m and a overall lifting capacity of 70t, new machines as for example a 4m folding press and a plasma cutting unit for metal plates of up to 18 m² one is well equipped in the medium term. Therefore, there are no barriers for a further expansion of the Leiblein GmbH in the coming years.
