Our Story

It all started here in 1952. The birthplace of the current LEON’s Manufacturing Company Inc. was the Leons Welding – Machine Shop in Bankend Saskatchewan, Canada.


Since 1952, LEON’s has built high quality, rock-solid material handling equipment that have stood the test of time. Our products have earned LEON’s a worldwide reputation for award winning technical innovation, reliability, and outstanding performance.


LEON’s was inspired by Stanley Malinowski, and founded by his son Leon Malinowski in 1952. For over 50 years, Leon’s cultivated excellence that forged the global reputation. Joined in 1967 by his brother and partner Ray, LEON’s continued to grow in bolder and innovative directions.


Now in the next century the helm has been passed to a third generation of Malinowskis. Lead by John, Linda and others, the next generation personifies the founder’s values that have made LEON’s a worldwide leader in materials handling equipment.


This is what you can expect from every attachment, dozer blade, front-end loader, land scraper, manure spreader, and rear blade that bears the name LEON.
