Lechler, Inc. Lechler GmbH



Paul Lechler founded Lechler GmbH in 1879 as a specialty industrial supplier in Stuttgart, Germany. By the 1890's Lechler had acquired specialized nozzle technology and became a manufacturer.

In the 1970's, Lechler made its entry into the North American market when it formed a relationship with Spraco, a long–established nozzle manufacturer in the United States. In 1987, Spraco became Lechler, Inc., which serves North America and is the second largest sales and manufacturing company in the Lechler Group of international companies. Today, Lechler is still owned by the Lechler family and has these facilities worldwide:
