The customer is our focus

…because we know that their satisfaction determines our company’s success.

 Our continuous commitment to our customers shapes our corporate culture at the same time. We place value on quality and sustainable business practices. We promote our staff’s professional development and provide competent customer care. We advance high-tech innovations in our company and support many social projects.

In doing so, we do not lose sight of customer value because it is the only way to generate real added value. Creating satisfied customers comes through quality, innovations, and constant productivity improvements. And that’s done every day anew. This is what LSH stands for.

At LSH, people make the difference

LSH is an independent, professionally managed family business with over a hundred years of tradition. It is owned by the fourth generation, which closely accompanies the Management Board and the company's development. Michael Spethmann is Chairman of the Supervisory Board and Jochen Spethmann is a member of the Advisory Board. The fifth generation is now also actively involved in the company.

The secret of the LSH success story sounds quite simple: People make the difference, whether as employees, customers or suppliers. We prove that this is true every day: with more ideas and expertise, more customer benefits and concepts, and more sustainability and quality. Each and every member of our family of around 1,700 employees is personally committed to this. Every day.
