What our employees say

Discover four of the numerous career opportunities for our employees.

From graduate to division manager

I ended up at Leadec right after my studies. There I was immediately thrown into the deep end and supervised a project in China for three months. But that's how I learned to swim and was able to show what I'm made of. I was quickly promoted to team leader and was able to contribute my ideas. After that, I gained experience at different locations - always looking for new challenges.


I am now the division manager at Leadec in Hanover. My team consists of seven people with an international background. Leadec also supports me in my desire to continue my education with a part-time master’s degree.


Alexander, production planning, manufacturing engineering

Joining the group of choice

After studying logistics, I wanted to get involved in planning, but getting started there is not easy without professional experience. Leadec made it possible for me anyway and I was able to establish myself with a well-known automobile manufacturer. I have already supervised three projects from start to finish and have learned a lot. I am currently responsible for adapting systems in a production facility in Mexico and coordinating the technical changes from the specifications to the balance sheet.


The work is complex and extensive, and therefore very varied. Exactly the right thing for me, so I discussed with my supervisor that I wanted to stay in the team and Leadec satisfied my wish. I am now an integral part and support new Leadec colleagues.


Ines, planning engineer for plant construction

Projects that suit me

After graduating from the University of Applied Sciences as a state-certified technician, I started working for Leadec. In close consultation with my supervisor, we have found a position that corresponds to my skills: in the redesign of rail vehicles. We develop entire vehicles here and I am there from the first pencil line to commissioning, writing concepts, drafting sketches and workpieces. At the end we see the locomotive drive out of the factory. Then you think to yourself every time: "Wow, we did that!"

I have been working in the rail sector for three years. I have developed professionally with the various projects and now I want to take on more management responsibility. Leadec supports me in this.


Martin, rail vehicle construction

Demanding project nearby

I studied electrical engineering and am now responsible for programming biogas plants. I also oversee the commissioning of these systems on site in France. I am very interested in new energies. Here I can put my knowledge to good use and contribute to innovative technologies.


I have tasks that challenge me and I can work near where I live. If I am looking for a new challenge or if I no longer feel comfortable in the project, I know that Leadec will support me and look for a suitable position for me.


Marlene, process engineering automation


We have long-term partnerships with top companies such as VW, Opel, Bosch, DÜRR, EFW, sitech and Alfa Laval. We are firmly anchored in the automotive industry and international corporations also rely on our expertise in the areas of process engineering, rail, mechanical engineering, shipbuilding and aviation.

Our customers rely on our services and developments along the entire production process: from planning to maintenance, from commissioning to modernization.

Our services

  • All
  • Engineer
  • Install
  • Maintain
  • Support
  • Production Planning and Optimization

    Factory planning and factory optimization are two factors that determine the success of a production facility. For this reason, Leadec accompanies its customers along the entire process: from planning to successful commissioning, ramp-up support, and quality management.

  • Automation

    Digitalization and automation characterize modern smart factories. As a pioneer, Leadec is breaking new ground here, developing and realizing appropriate solutions to make manufacturing fit for Industry 4.0.

  • Production IT

    Intelligent production control makes all the difference and transforms contemporary production facilities into future-ready smart factories. Leadec also relies on in-house software solutions for this.

  • Electrical and Mechanical Installation

    Without electrical and mechanical components, nothing works in a factory. Leadec assembles, installs, and wires entire production facilities, individual production units, and safety-relevant elements. We also realize steel or metal construction projects from planning to manufacturing to the finished installation.

  • Relocation

    The relocation of production units or entire production facilities is one of the most challenging areas of factory organization. For that reason, for machine relocation, Leadec draws on its entire range of planning, logistics, and human resources services to ensure that every relocation project is a thorough success.

  • Production Equipment Maintenance

    A production facility has to run smoothly to be good. With its technical services, Leadec takes care of servicing, inspection, and preventive maintenance of entire production facilities.

  • Technical Cleaning

    Dirt and technical facilities are not compatible. Leadec has been cleaning industrial facilities for nearly 60 years now – especially paint lines. That’s why we know exactly what care today’s machines and systems need. Because experience pays off.

  • Technical Facility Management

    An ideal production environment includes modern buildings and technical facilities. To ensure that they function reliably, Leadec takes care of their professional operation, maintenance, inspection and repair in a responsible manner.

  • Infrastructural Facility Management

    Production is the heart of a company, but the buildings are its face. Not only for customers and partners but also for employees. And because cleanliness plays a central role here, Leadec handles the cleaning and maintenance of the complete infrastructure.

  • Logistics

    When everything is flowing smoothly in logistics, then production also works properly. That’s why Leadec organizes and optimizes the processes between procurement and distribution – from storage to transport, spare parts management and disposal. We take care of all logistics tasks inside and outside your production buildings professionally and reliably.
