LVD is a world leader in the design and manufacture of sheet metal fabrication equipment with one of the most comprehensive product offerings in the industry. Our equipment and software provide innovative and integrated metalworking solutions to improve production processes and advance the Smart Factory.
LVD is a family-owned business managed by the second and third generations of the founding families, Lefebvre, Van Neste and Dewulf. We operate independently and are able to set our strategic direction, which gives us agility to change and evolve. This is fundamental to our company culture and our future.
Established in 1952, LVD gained recognition as a precision press brake manufacturer. Significant growth in the 1990s, which included the acquisition of Strippit, Inc. in 1998, a U.S. based manufacturer of turret punch press equipment, and the addition of laser cutting machines to the LVD product line, helped position us as a leader in laser cutting, punching and bending technology, and in the production of heavy-duty, custom press brakes and guillotine shears.
