About us


LEUTERT company was founded in 1941 by Friedrich Leutert, a watchmaker by trade, and a gifted engineer. Most of the early products like chronometers as well as navigational instruments for the shipping industry were designed by him. He quickly established the company as a major provider of subsurface and surface instruments mainly for the upstream oil and gas industry in Europe.

His son, Hartwig Leutert, joined the company in 1971 establishing offices and agencies in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. In 1985 he acquired the engine indicator product line from Maihak, thus manufacturing, and supply of indicators for monitoring the performance of large diesel engines has become a solid foundation for LEUTERT´s success.

Today, LEUTERT indicators are used by all major engine makers and on ships worldwide. In 2008 the third generation took over and Sebastian Leutert became managing director. Under his directive a propeller shaft torque measurement system was added to the maritime product line, as engines’ efficiency and thus environmental aspects in shipping industry came to the fore.
