The name Lukas stands for hydraulics since the end of the 1940s. That is how long pioneering hydraulic products have been manufactured in Erlangen. Initially only for industrial applications, in 1955 the re-railing equipment area was added and in 1972 LUKAS developed the first hydraulic cutting device to be offered for rescue use. And with that, a foundation stone was laid for the whole sector.
Today the company is represented globally by an extensive dealer network with its hydraulic products in three different product sectors: High-pressure hydraulics for industrial applications, re-railing technology and hydraulic rescue equipment. With the latter company sector, Lukas supports emergency services to save people's lives around the world.
Lukas products are still manufactured by the in-house production department with quality that is "Made in Germany”, and shipped around the world. As part of the international IDEX Corporation, it is possible to utilise synergies between the continents and the comprehensive expertise of the existing units of the IDEX Fire & Safety family can also be called upon.
