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.
The eventful history of the Lechner company
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 in well-earned retirement. In March 2022, Lechner was taken over by the Livos Group. With Florian Mitzscherlich as Managing Director and Hartmut Müller from the Livos Group, the traditional company is headed by two experienced managers.
