Durability and Quality Equals Sustainability at Leki
PSIA-AASI Official Supplier Leki’s priority is to combine high performance with comfort and security. Through constant communication with experts and professional athletes, such as members of the PSIA-AASI National Team, the brand ensures an exceptional level of quality in its poles and gloves.
It’s a key aspect of Leki’s commitment to sustainability that each customer can enjoy intelligently designed products for many years to come. With over 250 patents, LEKI has registered more innovations than almost any other manufacturer in the outdoor industry.
According to Waltraud Lenhart, Leki’s late owner and managing partner, taking responsibility for the brand’s actions and producing high-quality products are an integral part of LEKI. Lenhart said, “We were asked once: ‘Why are your repairing all of these old poles, that came back after many years of good service?’ Our answer was simple, ‘Because it´s the right thing to do.’”
Leki products are jointly developed and manufactured in Germany and the Czech Republic to eliminate lengthy supply chains and expensive procurement channels. By using the most modern production processes and manufacturing facilities, the state-of-the-art technology enables the brand to manufacture products while conserving finite resources.
The company also embraces renewable energy, installing the first photovoltaic (solar) system in Leki’s Kirchheim, Germany, location in 2005, which supplies all its energy needs from April to September. Over the year, LEKI generates 7% more electricity than total energy consumption, and reduces its CO2 emissions by over 33 tons of CO2 per year.
