D. Lechner GmbH is founded in Forstinning near Munich with a focus on the sale of kitchen accessories. In the early days, the business is largely run from the garage at Günter Lechner's home.
This was the vision of Günter and Doris Lechner – founder of what is now Europe's largest manufacturer of kitchen worktops and back walls. With his goal of giving the kitchen and its owners more individuality, the company's experienced founder has written an epic success story. His wife and co-owner, Doris Lechner, has been constantly at his side – the company D. Lechner GmbH also bears her name.
Just as the kitchen has evolved over many decades – from a functional fitted kitchen to the primary hub of social activity within the home – Lechner has succeeded in writing the story of the worktop's place as the most important design element in the kitchen.
In the meantime, founder Günter Lechner is enjoying his well-earned retirement. The traditional company in Rothenburg ob der Tauber remains in the family's safe hands under the leadership of Managing Director and board member Andrea Lechner-Meidel.
