For more than 75 years, LECO Corporation has remained a worldwide leader in the development of top-quality analytical instrumentation, mass spectrometers, metallography and optical equipment, and related consumables.

Our diverse selection of products covers the following areas:

Analytical Science—Elemental analyzers for carbon, sulfur, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen; analyzers for protein, ash/moisture, mercury, and calorific value; glow discharge spectrometers for bulk and/or quantitative depth profile analysis.

Separation Science—Fast GC-TOFMS systems with ChromaTOF® software dedicated to a wide variety of applications; GCxGC-TOFMS and GCxGC FID/ECD systems offer increased separation power. New High Resolution TOFMS systems combine speed, resolution, mass accuracy, and dynamic range for capabilities not previously possible in a single instrument.

Metallographic Science—Metallographic sample preparation equipment; macro and microindentation hardness testers; microscopes; image analysis and management systems; optical accessories.

Our Company

An independent, family-owned company, LECO is dedicated to serving our customers—from concept to design, development to manufacture, to customer service and support after the sale.

Located in St. Joseph, Michigan—just 90 miles from both Chicago and Grand Rapids, Michigan—LECO's headquarters is comprised of several buildings, each contributing to a unique area of the company's success. At our cutting-edge research and development facilities, teams of engineers work together to create and test ideas that will be incorporated into the next generation of instruments. From stamped metal parts to complex electronic assemblies, most components are produced in-house, allowing strict control over the entire manufacturing and assembly process in accordance with the quality standards of ISO-9001:2008.

The Global Support Center provides service and support after the sale of your instrument, as well as customer training courses, and the only fleet of mobile laboratories in North America featuring hands-on experience with LECO products and specialists. A global network of sales and support professionals, along with CE testing performed at an on-site compliance testing center, help strengthen a commitment to worldwide excellence.

Metallographic and analytical laboratories are dedicated to helping new and current customers meet their application goals, while an optical service laboratory offers calibrations for LECO hardness testing and microscopy equipment traceable to ISO 17025 through A2LA accreditation. For those focused on Separation Science, the Life Science and Chemical Analysis Centre provides application assistance, instrument demonstrations, and technical presentations.

Whether it is a diverse array of analytical instrumentation, a new way to look at gas chromatography, rugged metallography products, or dedicated service support after the sale, LECO stands by a commitment of helping you achieve the right results.
