Company profile

Customer-oriented solutions from a single source

Laubinger+Rickmann GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1972 by Harald Laubinger and has been working in the current legal form since 1977. At the beginning, the main focus was on the destructive testing of materials as well as furnace construction. Over the years, the field of activity has also expanded to non-destructive testing (NDT), straightening systems and other special machines.

The number of employees has grown steadily to around 100 employees.

NDT

The first major foothold for L+R has been the construction, manufacturing and assembly of non-destructive testing mechanisms for various industrial areas, primarily for the aerospace and steel industry, but also for the railway sector.

Straightening systems

The second major foothold in the last 15 years has been the construction, manufacturing and assembly of straightening systems for various aluminum castings, mainly for the automotive industry, both directly from the manufacturers as well as from the large OEMs.

Assembly lines

In addition, components for assembly lines in the aviation sector have been manufactured for approximately five years.
