"Innovation is only truly successful when it is sustainable in the long run"
- Udo Lütze
Sustainable enterprise means thinking and planning ahead, understanding and embedding the belief that long lasting success is more important than short-term profit maximisation. This is an attitude that has existed within LÜTZE for some time. Economic and environmental responsibilities compliment each other well and are reflected in sustainable management and product policy – and also in the LUETZE sustainability campaign, SkyBLUE.
Sustainability has many facets
The LUETZE International Group manufactures their products in a resourceful and energy-conscious manner, we use durable and environmentally- friendly materials. Intelligent products also help our customers to save energy and resources. Sustainable products provide sustainable solutions.
Quality, innovation and efficiency begins with people. We would not be where we are today without our highly qualified and motivated employees. An uncompromising focus on quality, for about 60 years of experience in Automation Technology and of course a common desire for greater innovation and efficiency – that’s what makes LÜTZE so successful.

Company founded by Friedrich Lütze
As experienced specialists in automation technology, with solutions for highly flexible cables, cable assemblies, interfaces, current control and cabinet wiring, LUETZE has focused on efficiency for many years.
LUETZE defines Efficiency in Automation as the use of sustainable products and solutions to further increase the performance of the products in our customer's applications.
We have a comprehensive range of industrial cables with high availability for a variety of uses. Cables with very low capacitance for low-loss power transmission. Our own cable production and international approvals. The first highly flexible cables were also first produced in 1966 by LUETZE.
At LUETZE, we are experienced in cable technology and are concerned with providing the appropriate connection technology and cable assemblies. LUETZE connectivity systems are compatible with all current standards. Our modern cable assemblies leave nothing to be desired. Design, documentation, production- all in our capable hands.
Industry 4.0 needs communication, communication needs security! LUETZE provides power monitoring, power systems and interface solutions for the Internet of things. LUETZE control solutions are characterized by particularly high efficiency. Minimal device dimensions assist in the reduction of cabinet volumes, thus reducing the cooling energy required. Efficiency to the smallest detail.
With countless pioneering achievements and patents, LUETZE is today one of the world's leading companies in the automation industry. LUETZE invests considerably more in research and development than the industry average.
In 1972 the LSC wiring system revolutionized the way control systems are wired and build. In 2013 the AirSTREAM System is revolutionizing the control cabinet again. Making compact and thermal optimized control cabinets possible. Further developed in 2017: AirSTREAM becomes a highly efficient and path breaking thermal concept for control cabinets.
