Leica Factory Lens Manufacture (3)

Leica Factory, Wetzlar, Germany.

At the recent launch of the Leica SL (Typ 601), we had the opportunity to have a tour of the new Leica Wetzlar factory and headquarters where they assemble and manufacture Leica lenses, and S, M, and SL cameras. Located at the Leica, Wetzlar headquarters is a Leica store, cafe and gallery. The factory employs 700 people, with another factory located in Portugal, which also employs around 700 people.
