Leben-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH was founded in November 1967 as a construction office with its own sales department, originally as "Leben & Co GmbH". The development of snow groomers for ski runs was at the forefront at the time. Their production was licensed.
In 2019 a further hall was finally added to create a total usable area of 3,500 m² of offices, production and storage space. This workshop increases the production area by a further 50 percent and has been equipped with state-of-the-art technology. These include the WFL M40, a multifunctional turning, drilling & milling centre for complete machining of complex chuck and shaft parts up to a swing diameter of 670 mm and a centre distance of 4500 mm.
After Kögel moved into a new building in 1999, the rooms that became available and the complete assembly department were taken over by Leben-Dämpfungstechnik GmbH. However, these premises were soon no longer sufficient and a new building was planned, which was ready for occupation in 2003.
