PCBs made in Berlin - by LeitOn since 2004

LeitOn stands for a combination of the German word for PCBs, "Leiterplatten" and "Online". Our company was established in 2004. The concept is based on an extended and convenient online calculation for all kind of printed circuits. Special technologies as well as express quick-turn services are available online - mostly Made in Germany. For higher quantities our own staff in China takes care of your mass production printed circuits.

LeitOn currently employs around 20 employees in Berlin, Germany. We offer printed circuit board prototypes in express service up to 40-layer multilayers. A highly qualified CAM-team inspects and optimizes all files intensively before going into production. Our friendly, fast and competent sales team prepares easy-to-read quotations for you, from one prototpye up to call-orders, price-matrix and packages for multiple layouts. If you would like to meet us in person, you are welcome to visit us in Berlin, on a range of exhibitions or at your own facilities.

Mass production is handled by our subsidiary in China with currently around 20 employees: quality manager, project manager, logistics manager, assembly technicians and quality inspection staff. Our direct presence on the Chinese market with a local team assures that quality control and packing requirements are implemented reliably according to German standards. Personal contact with our suppliers and a team of Chinese technicians, engineers and even a Ph.D. take care of the necessary "guanxi" (chinese for "relationship").

LeitOn becomes climate neutral - since 2021 we have been offsetting the CO2 emissions of all printed circuit boards we supply. This includes not only the electricity consumption, but also the CO2 emissions of the necessary raw materials such as copper, epoxy and fiberglass. Of course, transport should not be forgotten either...
