The foundations of LEONI AG date back to the 16th Century, when its founder Antoni Fournier from French Lyon tried to meet women's needs by making beautiful pieces of jewelry. The cables' production commenced back in 1917, while the production of cable sets did not commence before 1950. LEONI started to expand rapidly in 1999, after the holding structure LEONI AG had been established, with LEONI Slovakia being its integral part up to the present. LEONI performs in Slovakia as of 1992, after the first production plant in Nová Dubnica had been established. Soon, more production plants in Trenčíne (1993), Stará Turá (2000) and Ilava (2004) followed. In 2013, all of these companies, which were separated until then, formed a common representation of LEONI in Slovakia under the name of LEONI Slovakia, Ltd. , with original companies appearing further as self-contained branches.
