Since 1934 Leone Company has been manufacturing dental products in Florence
The history of development of Leone S.p.a. began in the workshop of a resourceful craftsman. It was 1934 when Mario Pozzi, father of the actual President Alessandro Pozzi, began his business activity. He decided from the beginning to adopt the lion head of Marzocco, the Florentine symbol of excellence, as his trademark and so it was here that the history of Leone S.p.a began. The Leone factory is located in the west region of Florence, consisting of 15.000 sq. meters and currently employs more than 100 people dedicated to orthodontics and implantology. Today, Leone S.p.a is the leading Italian manufacturer of orthodontic products and since 1993 it is member of O.M.A. (Orthodontic Manufacturer Association) which incorporate the only 12 world-wide orthodontic manufacturers.
It was 2001 when Leone has introduced the Leone “Implant System” result of a wide research and of our new commitment to the dental market. The continuous developments of Quality and Manufacturing techniques, the state of the art factory allow Leone to offer its range of products to a constantly demanding and evolving market.
