When you think of Leonard you most likely think of steam tunnel finishers and how we can help your overall finishing department. Although this is our core business, it may interest you to know that we are in many different markets reaching a worldwide audience. Why is this of benefit to you? Through this diversification we have managed to grow through the recession which shows the strength and focus of the company. Additionally, we are able to stay out of the “pigeon hole” so to speak technologically while cross migrating learned practices throughout our varied product lines. This self-refining practice adds fresh perspective and spawns continuous improvement and innovation.
For instance, did you know that Leonard is a major supplier to the garment manufacturing industry? We manufacture curing ovens and heat setting equipment for the seamless and wrinkle free markets. Customers like Nike, Under Armour, L.L. Bean, and Victoria’s Secret are just a few of the names that you may recognize. With extremely accurate airflow and heat distribution, Leonard has become a preferred vendor for many of the major brands. The level of control within these processes is critical, and we have been able to implement those same controls and tolerances into your steam tunnel. These markets are not located in the US anymore…places like Asia, the Middle-East, India, South America, etc. are where these pieces are going.
