Tradition and progress since the 16th century

A small wire factory in the Franconia region of Bavaria laid the foundation for today’s global player LEONI back in 1569. At that time, Frenchman Anthoni Fournier began with a handful of staff in Nuremberg to produce finest gold and silver threads, known as Lyonese wares, for precious woven products. From these beginnings, Leonische Werke Roth-Nürnberg AG emerged in 1917. The ability to change as well as a keen sense for trends in the market and for customer requirements are still among the Company’s key characteristics.
