Over 60 years ago, the brothers Helmuth and Alwin Lehner founded the company ‘Alpenplastik Lehner Alwin GmbH’. Their initial assets consisted of courage, hard work and an injection moulding machine acquired at low cost.
They converted the laundry room in their parents’ home into a production hall, and they were grateful for every helping hand they got. Their passion for technical challenges remains unparalleled to this day and is one of the cornerstones of our company’s history.
As a global company, we are aware of our responsibilities. Our identity is shaped by fairness and honesty, partnerships and respectful actions. The equal treatment of all people and law-abiding behaviour are also of vital importance to us.
