Established in 1976, LPKF in Garbsen fast made itself a name with their unorthodox procedures during the prototype inhouse manufacturing of printed circuit boards (LPKF stands for "Leiterplatten-Kopierfräsen" - translated "circuit board copy milling"). The CAD controlled milling technology was established as efficient and pollution free alternative to etching. At that time a revolution – today an often proven standard.
Altogether the company employs at present about 572 employees. World-wide LPKF customers are accompanied by subsidiaries and/or commercial representations.
