Leuze is placing its strong growth on a broader footing and has expanded its executive management. Xavier Hamers joined the company on April 1, 2023.

By 2025, Leuze will have doubled its sales growth since 2020, and not for the first time. With a sales increase of 25 percent, Leuze took another big step toward achieving this ambitious goal in 2022. And the company is set to make further investments: in international structures as well as in its employees and new talent.

Expanded executive management

Due to the company’s strong growth, Leuze has begun to gradually and systematically place the entire company on a broader footing – in terms of its processes and its organization. A year ago, Helge Held (CFO and Commercial Director) and Dr. Henning Grönzin (CTO and Technical Director) joined the Leuze executive management.

The New KRT 3C Contrast Sensor from Leuze. Put Into the Right Light

Many light types and a compact housing: The new KRT 3C contrast sensor from Leuze can be flexibly integrated into packaging processes thanks to its multicolor capability and small size.

With the KRT 3C contrast sensor, Leuze is presenting the smallest contrast sensor it has ever made for the packaging industry. Plant operators benefit from a compact device that can be used in many different ways: The KRT 3C detects reliably and position-accurately even if there are only small contrast differences and with glossy surfaces or highly reflective materials. This is made possible by the multicolor functionality: red, green, and blue light as well as white and laser red light will not allow any object or printed label to pass through unnoticed. This allows users to select the right light source for any material and contrast mark color for their packaging and labeling processes.
