Leather is tactile elegance

Success is what you get when you make the right decisions and take the right actions.

Lecapell GmbH has worked exclusively in the processing and finishing of leather for the past three decades. Initially, we only manufactured products for the fashion and furniture industries, focusing primarily on high quality, fashionable aesthetics, and a pleasant feel. Our years of experience were invaluable when we later expanded into the automotive sector.


We achieved our breakthrough in the automotive industry in 1998 on the basis of constant development. The first car with a Lecapell leather steering wheel left the factory in 2001. Since then, Lecapell has also established itself as a reliable and trusted partner to the leading manufacturers in this sector.


12,000,000 Lecapell leather steering wheels in cars all over the world are the best testimony to our customer's confidence in the quality of our products.


Since Lecapell produces an absolutely unique type of leather using special finishing processes, this has also been given its own brand name - pellskin.


The 3,200 m² production hall constructed in 2012, the new development area and the 14,000 m² of expandable space at our new production site in Waizenkirchen are the largest investment in the history of our company. Lecapell seeks to continue to deliver in its position as an international market-leader with increasing efficiency and the appropriate dedication of resources.


Behind every successful production is a successful quality management system. Since the introduction of ISO 9001:2000 in 2001, the system has now been updated to the version - ISO 9001:2015. In addition, the company has been ISO 14001: 2015 certified since July 2017.


Lecapell is conscious of its environmental responsibility. The economic use of one of our most valuable resources – water – is ensured through the use of state-of-the-art machines. Continuous development of the production processes also contributes considerably to the reduction of CO2 emissions.
