We are Litty

A family business with passion and respect

Tungsten belongs to Litty just as much as strong cohesion. Because just as the heavy metal is solid, the Littys’ also stick together as a family and as business owners. “We’re a family business which has its heart in the right place. Part of our success is due to the way we deal with each other as partners. Our customers also detect that”, Marie-Therese Litty-Panitz emphasises. The Litttys’ live traditional values. Modern sustainability considerations and mindful interaction form part of the company’s philosophy.

The management

Litty is close to its customers’ needs. In January 2023, Marie-Therese Litty-Panitz officially took over the management of the company from her father. Together with her husband Michael Panitz, the business economist has been firmly entrenched in the company for several years. “With us, everything is direct and hassle-free,” is their motto. For customers, this is a stroke of luck. “Quotations – even for special productions or tricky requirements – are processed within a very short time and reach the customer as quickly as possible.” Time is valuable. For everyone involved. 

Litty operates internationally

Our customer segments

Refractory metals: We supply our customers with refractory metals such as tungsten and special alloys. Custom-made products or standard products are used in many areas of industry and technology. The automotive industry, mechanical engineering, medical technology and aerospace rely on Litty’s proven quality and speed.

Welding electrodes: We’re the specialists and supply our customers with tungsten electrodes. Our range includes every composition and dimension available on the market. In addition, we produce the unique welding electrodes Lymox® and LymoxLux®, which are only available from Litty.

The idea that sparked things

The development of innovative tungsten electrodes was a masterstroke of the Litty family. Together with father Richard, Marie-Therese Litty-Panitz dedicated herself to this invention and its launch as a product. Lymox® and LymoxLux® make it possible to reduce the range of electrodes to one type. Lymox® is TIG welding of the highest precision: environmentally friendly, sustainable and radiation-free – made in Germany. A premium product.

A look back to the beginnings

In 1992, father Richard Litty founded the company. Before that he had worked in mechanical engineering. Its good reputation in the field of welding technology and raw metals quickly spread. His wife Elisabeth managed the accounts. And daughter Marie-Therese made the warehouse and workshop her personal playground as a child. Here she was able to develop her technical and commercial understanding. She decided to study business administration in 2008 and returned to the family business in 2011.

Best customer relations

Fairness, respect and trust characterise our dealings with our customers and partners. These values – together with our responsibility for people and the environment – are firmly entrenched in the philosophy of our business. The married couple Litty-Panitz are looking to the future with lots of ideas for even stronger products. Openness to their customers’ concerns is a matter of course.

The company headquarters

Litty is located in Erlstätt, Bavaria, near Lake Chiemsee. A congenial environment for a congenial family who, together with an experienced team, ensure genuine customer satisfaction.
