Lenco was founded in 1946 in the Swiss Burgdorf by the couple Fritz and Marie Laeng. Fascinated by sound technology, the Swiss Fritz Laeng started an electrical business in 1925 and his wife, Marie, became the driving force. When the couple, based on the strong demand for turntables, started a small factory, it was Marie that thought of the name Lenco (derived from the surname of the couple). Thus began the success story of Lenco. The key concepts which ensured the companies success were reliability of the turntables and the excellent technical service. The reputation of the brand, striving for perfection, was born.
