SINCE 1936

The one thing all laboratories need to be successful is results they feel confident in. Since 1936, millions of samples worldwide have been analyzed using LECO instruments for elemental analysis, thermal analysis, metallography, and mass spectrometry. Our comprehensive solutions for improving productivity include working with you to find the right equipment for the type of analysis you are doing — and providing you with the training, application support, and service you need to keep your lab running at its best.


With 25 worldwide subsidiaries and sales partners, LECO products are sold and serviced in over 75 countries around the globe.

Established in 1936 by Carl Schultz, the Laboratory Equipment Company introduced what would be the first rapid carbon determinator to the American iron and steel industry. Today, over 80 years later, LECO continues to be a family-owned company in its third generation of leadership and is recognized globally as a leader in the development of high-quality elemental and thermal analysis equipment, mass spectrometers and chromatographs, metallography and optical equipment, and consumables.

LECO established its first international office in Germany in 1967, and since that time has grown to include over 25 worldwide subsidiaries and distributors who are authorized to sell our equipment to over 75 countries around the Globe. Our on-site Compliance Testing Center (CTC) in US and the European Application and Training Center in Berlin, Germany helps strengthen a commitment to worldwide excellence by ensuring all global compliance standards are met.

Our headquarter in St. Joseph, Michigan, USA,  is comprised of several facilities each dedicated to improving customer success, including state-of-the-art research and development centers and rugged manufacturing facilities. From stamped metal parts to complex electronic assemblies, most components for our instruments are innovated and produced in-house. Through this vertical integration system, we are able to maintain strict control over the manufacturing and assembly process in accordance with our quality standards.

With the European Application and Training Center in Berlin and a professional LECO team in many European countries and around the world, we are able to provide our customers with the best service at all times.

In 2006, we opened the doors to our Global Support Center – a facility dedicated to providing customers with service, training, and additional support after the sale of their instrument. A global network of service professionals help ensure customers around the world receive the service they need.
