Today, Leistritz and its approximately 1800 employees, serve customers around the world through subsidiaries, agents and distributors. American Leistritz Extruder Corp. and Leistritz Corporation, both started in the early 1980s to serve the US, Canadian and Latin American markets. As of 2014, all Leistritz US entities are now operating as Leistritz Advanced Technologies Corp., headquartered in Allendale, NJ which is also home to the Pump, Machine Tools and Turbine Components Business Units; while Somerville, NJ is home to the Leistritz Extrusion Business Unit.
