History

Leuco S.p.A. was established in 1979 in Reggio Emilia, one of Italy’s premier industrial sectors, which is well known for its skilled labour force and high number of machinery and agribusiness equipment manufacturing plants. Moreover, Reggio Emilia is internationally recognized as the heartland for the manufacture of top-quality, high-pressure pumps used in hot and cold-water pressure washers and other high-pressure cleaning equipment.

For 30 years, Leuco S.p.A. has been a leader in the design of industrial, heavy-duty, multi-plunger pumps, manufacturing high-pressure pumps and accessories under the widely recognized HAWK label with a product range offering of over 70 models sold around the world.

In 2000, the Quality System of Leuco S.p.A. was certified in compliance with UNI EN ISO 9001 standards. In 2004, Leuco S.p.A. joined the Group KÄRCHER, the world’s largest cleaning equipment manufacturer. This has given the company additional impetus to design and develop innovative products to satisfy the needs of the world market.

Environment and Sustainability

LEUCO S.p.A. has always been concerned about protecting and preserving the environment, to the point that this has become an essential element of our company policy. In order to comply with REACH regulations, we initially got in touch with all of our suppliers, asking them to provide the information we needed to get a clear picture of the supply chain and take appropriate action in good time. At the moment, we can safely say that our suppliers and sub-suppliers take care of all of the pre- and post-registrations of harmful substances. We continue to monitor any changes in REACH regulations with regard to obligations relating to information. As soon as the list of harmful substances was drawn up on 28th October 2008, we contacted our suppliers, requesting and obtaining the necessary information. We reacted promptly to the indications in the document, complying with and acting in accordance with §33 of the regulation.

Some substances of very high concern (SVHC) are in normal use: DEHP, for example, is a substance used to make plastic flexible and is therefore found in electric cabling, pipes, wheels, handgrips and other items and similar parts. When these substances are used according to legal standards, they do not cause any harm or represent a hazard for human health or for the environment. The use of these substances complies with legal directives. Nevertheless, Leuco is already taking action to replace these substances, whenever this is technically possible, in case they will be prohibited in the future.

Please contact our environment department for any further details, it will be our pleasure to give you all the information you are looking for.
