Lektro invented the towbarless electric aircraft tug and has been manufacturing it since 1967. In the more than 50 years since this pioneering innovation, Lektro has continued to improve and perfect its original design, becoming a standard bearer in the industry. The Lektro towbarless tug is in use in countless aviation venues, bringing American manufacturing excellence to ground crews at regional airports, large international hubs, and military bases throughout the world.
The Lektro corporation has gained a reputation as “The Electric Vehicle People,” not only for its work in revolutionizing the aircraft tug, but also for having created the first electric golf cart. A second-generation family business, Lektro is based in Oregon and employs more than 80 people, many of whom have been with the company for decades. The Lektro commitment to quality, innovation, and sustainability is respected the world over.
