With ground-breaking innovations and international patents, the company, still young at the time, was already developing a presence in the market. LÜTZE was one of the first companies to market cables for drag chains in the 1960s.

Since then, LÜTZE's advanced AirSTREAM system has set new standards in energy efficiency, space utilization and the service life of control cabinet components.

With its range of products from the area of Control, LÜTZE covers the area of electronic overload and short circuit protection, as well as the entire spectrum of industrial power supplies. The LOCC-Box and LCOS CC systems guarantee intelligent and reliable power monitoring and all the possibilities of integration into the latest Industry 4.0 applications.

The company is constantly growing. LÜTZE operates a global network of distribution and production companies, and is represented in all of the world's major markets.
