The LeiKoSi History
The company LeiKoSi GmbH was founded in 2017 and began directly with the marketing of their LeiKoSi – Ladder-Head-Safety-System. However, the development process started already years before.
Co-founder and Managing Director of LeiKoSi GmbH, Udo Heyl, is also a master roofer with over 30 years of work experience. Unfortunately, especially in the craft, many ladder accidents occur. Often, because the ladder slips laterally e.g. on the gutter or on the flat roof connection or at the bottom to behind. How fast it can happen, knows everyone who has ever suffered a ladder accident.
In order to protect his employees and appreciated fellow craftsmen as well as himself, he has been looking for ways to easily secure a ladder for a long time. The safety system should not only be reliable, but also efficient in its handling and versatile in its field of application.
In his more than three decades as a master roofer, Udo himself has experienced many dangerous situations when working with ladders. Including a more consequential ladder accident. However, this only motivated him more to find a solution for ladder securing that satisfies him.
Over the time, a small LeiKoSi team formed.
During the development period, the team worked closely with various professionals from trade and industry. Including experts of the DGUV (German Social Accident Insurance) and the BG BAU (German institution for statutory accident insurance and prevention for the construction industry). In many hard-working hours, a safety device was developed, which represents an absolute innovation in the field of occupational safety, the LeiKoSi Ladder-Head-Safety-System.
As a result, the company LeiKoSi GmbH, based in Kaiserslautern, was founded and started directly with the distribution of the Ladder-Head-Safety-System. The Ladder-Head-Safety-System is at the same time the namesake of the company. Because “LeiKoSi” stands as an abbreviation for “LeiterKopfSicherung” which means LadderHeadSecuring. In Kaiserslautern is also our manufacturer, the metal construction company Mischitz GmbH. Here, where the Ladder-Head-Safety-System are made is ensured that each part is of highest quality.
