Detail: Jefferson Hills, PA. The Kurt J. Lesker Company (KJLC®) is proud to announce the celebration of 60 years in business. Our founder, Kurt J. Lesker II, started the Kurt J. Lesker Company on April 1, 1954 in the basement of his home in Pittsburgh, PA. Since then, KJLC has grown from a regional manufacturer and distributor of vacuum components into a worldwide provider of a full range of vacuum parts, products, systems, design technologies, innovative thinking, and responsive customer service. Working with an attentive eye toward quality, environmental stewardship of resources, and customer satisfaction, KJLC serves the research and development market at both the academic and commercial levels, as well as providing vacuum products and services to industry on a global scale. Following our successful expansions into Canada and Europe, KJLC has continued to reach out globally, with the opening of our Shanghai, China office in 2007 and our newest location in Hong Kong. As a leading global provider of high-quality vacuum products and systems, along with an established tradition of service and attention to detail, the Kurt J. Lesker Company has built a reputation for being “A Global Vacuum Supplier.”
