After establishing an excellent reputation for building the best plastic surface treating equipment in North America in its first 30 years, Lectro started playing a much bigger role on the world stage and now has machines running in over 21 countries throughout the world.

Lectro Engineering Company began operations in 1960. At that time, the LectroTreat three dimensional plastic surface treater was the only product available. Blow molders loved the equipment for its reliability, versatility, safety and high production rates. Most importantly, it eliminated the need for testing or validation for surface treatment because it had the ability to surface treat containers the same way every time.
