60 years of Leifheit – Products that save time and make housework even easier!

The household problem-solver


When Günter Leifheit founded his company in 1959, he had a clear vision: “More free time with Leifheit”. The purpose of his household products was to make life easier. The time saved on housework could be devoted to enjoying the finer things in life. This remains Leifheit’s mission to this day. With innovative products such as the window vacuum or the manoeuvrable Profi floor cleaning system, hundreds of hours are saved on housework each year. Leifheit and its many inventions have made everyday housekeeping products more intelligent and efficient, speeding up housework and, even more crucially, making it a more pleasant experience. Little wonder, then, that in Germany alone, 25 million households now own at least one Leifheit product.
