With rough, medium, high and ultra-high vacuum pumps, vacuum systems, vacuum gauges, leak detectors, components and valves, as well as consulting and engineering of turnkey vacuum solutions, Leybold provides a very broad portfolio for general and specific customer applications. “We will continue to support our customers in the future with our vacuum expertise. Our enhanced product portfolio, sustainable after-sales services and proximity to our customer will distinguish us as a reliable business partner”, says Steffen Saur, Chief Marketing Officer, responsible for the global sales and service activities of Leybold. “Additionally, by combining Atlas Copco’s and Leybold’s strengths in industrial dry pumps and scientific turbo pumps, it will provide a technology platform for superior next generation products.”

As a pioneer of vacuum technology, Leybold will continue to focus on performance and growth in the industrial, research and development, and analytical market sectors.
