We have grown from a start-up to a stable, attractive and continously growing company with a clear vision to satisfy and enthuse our customers and employees in the long term.
For this purpose, we always act flexibly and in line with market requirements. This year we are rounding off our portfolio with the new construction of our laboratory hall next to the office building we moved into last year.
It remains exciting and we are looking forward to extend the history every year.
Bluetooth® qualification and testing services

New building of radio and safety laboratory
With the new building of our radio and safety laboratory, the IBL-Lab GmbH will be able to offer our customers the complete product portfolio in the middle of the year. Support during development and pre-certification tests are as much a part of the offer as radio, safety and EMC tests as well as a multitude of conformity tests.

Move to our new administration building in St. Ingbert
Thanks to our growth, the premises at the Innovationspark at the Beckerturm become too small and the IB-Lenhardt AG builds a 5-storey administration building with space for approximately 100 employees at the St. Ingbert location. The move takes places in May 2019.
Subsidiary IB-Lenhardt KK in Tokyo, Japan
Thanks to our market penetration in Japan, our Japanese customers demand our presence. This is why we are founding the IB-Lenhardt KK located in Tokyo in 2019.
Foundation of the IBL-Lab GmbH
Within the range of our services, our customers miss the offering of testing services. Therefore, with the establishment of the IBL-Lab GmbH, we are aiming to be able to offer regulatory testing in the near future.
Certification according to ISO 9001:2015
A further step to ensure our high quality standards was the certification according to ISO 9001:2015 in 2017. Continuous improvement processes as well as constant expansion are part of our top quality objectives.
Foundation of the KL-Certification GmbH
One of the considerations was to offer the services of the Certification Bodies to our customers. The foundation of the KL-Certification GmbH takes place with two Notified Bodies for EU. In addition to NB, TCB and FCB, the KL-Certification GmbH also offers numerous workshops and consulting services.
Introduction of a quality management system and of compliance guidelines
By creating clear structures and processes as well as our own quality standards, we implemented our quality management system and the highly important compliance guidelines in 2016 and are living them.
Transformation from sole proprietorship to IB-Lenhardt AG (incorporated company)
The constant and continous growth makes it inevitable to change the legal form according to the requirements of the company itself and of our customers. The implementation of our goals to ensure long-term capacities, to follow a healthy growth and to establish ourselves in the market as a constant leads to the decision to convert to an incorporated company.
Strong growth, initial considerations to expand our portfolio
Due to its strong growth, the company is assuming an ever-increasing role in the leading league of the type approval world. Initial considerations are being made to expand the portfolio.
Implementation of our software TAMSys® at our customers
