Levenhuk.com » About Us
Levenhuk is a major American manufacturer of optical devices and instruments such as microscopes, telescopes, binoculars, monoculars, spotting scopes and accessories. Particular attention is given to producing optics for children under the Levenhuk LabZZ trademark, including attractive and user-friendly telescopes, microscopes, binoculars and science kits. The company is headquartered in the United States (Tampa) with thirteen sales and delivery branches in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia, and manufacturing facilities in China.
Right from the start in 2002 Levenhuk focused its efforts on underserved markets outside of the US, in particular in Canada and Central and Eastern Europe, which presented larger opportunities. Levenhuk’s primary objective was to promote high-quality optics in these regions because of their insufficient supply and cost-sensitivity for most of the products available in the market at that time. Levenhuk took the opportunity to enter the market niche with a totally new product portfolio, having set the goal of making optics affordable for every customer. The success built on this step made it possible for the company to become a respected leader in the optics market, with the largest market share in CEE.
Currently Levenhuk has a direct presence and extensive dealer network in the United States, Canada, India, Southeast Asia and Europe. The company's future growth and expansion plans include opening regional branches and developing a distribution network in Southern America and further expanding in Europe.
From day one, our company has approached product design with diligence and creativity. We design and manufacture microscopes, telescopes and binoculars including a market-winning designer series of telescopes and microscopes. Levenhuk also offers ready-to-use microscope slides, star charts, cleaning accessories for optics and educational materials on natural science.
All Levenhuk products, with the exception of accessories, carry a lifetime warranty.

New product development and quality assurance
In 2010 - 2011 the innovative Levenhuk company brought a designer microscope series to the market and developed a unique series of Levenhuk Strike telescopes.

In 2013 the Levenhuk company released a new line of compact and portable Levenhuk DTX USB digital microscopes.
A lifetime warranty on Levenhuk products was also introduced in 2013. This indicates the high quality and reliability of the Levenhuk optical equipment.
At the beginning of 2014, the Levenhuk Strike PLUS and Levenhuk Skyline telescope series were supplemented with brand new models. The fall of 2014 was marked by the announcement of six brand new binoculars series, Levenhuk Karma and Levenhuk Sherman, as well as a new basic binoculars series, Levenhuk Atom and the vividly colored original Levenhuk Rainbow binoculars.
The year of 2015 has started with the launch of a new Levenhuk Wise PLUS monoculars series and a new Levenhuk Blaze PLUS spotting scopes series.
In February 2016 popular Levenhuk Rainbow Microscopes were renewed and upgraded. The improved microscope family now includes four bright series: 2L, 2L PLUS, 50L, 50L PLUS.
In June 2016 the first products in the Levenhuk LabZZ series designed specifically for children were released to the market. Levenhuk introduced three models from the Levenhuk LabZZ M101 microscope series as well as Levenhuk LabZZ MT2 Microscope & Telescope Kit.
The Levenhuk LabZZ series of optics for children and teenagers was completed in September 2016. Levenhuk LabZZ M Microscopes, Levenhuk LabZZ T Telescopes, Levenhuk LabZZ MTB3 Optics Kit as well as additional exploration tools for children – a special insect can and compact binoculars – all became available to customers.
In October 2016 Levenhuk released the new Levenhuk 700 microscope series consisting of four professional laboratory microscopes. The Levenhuk Zeno Vizor series that includes eight magnifiers of different types – magnifying glasses, head and neck magnifiers – was also introduced that month.
The year 2017 started with the release of great knowledge books by Levenhuk Press – bright encyclopedias about the cosmos and micro world for children over 6 years old.
Summer 2017 was marked by a full digital camera assortment renewal. We have released new M BASE and M PLUS series for microphotography, as well as the T PLUS series for astrophotography.
Levenhuk Skyline Travel telescopes became available for sale in fall 2017. These are lightweight and compact instruments that come with convenient backpacks, which makes them perfect for camping trips. The Levenhuk LabZZ children’s optics series was also expanded with the addition of a LabZZ D1 table-top telescope, LabZZ M4 microscope and small research tools (magnifiers, flashlights, monocular and compass).
In December 2017 our time-tested binocular family Levenhuk Sherman was expanded with a new series called Sherman BASE – the series includes multifunctional binoculars with Porro prisms and waterproof shells. We have also launched a new binocular series – Bruno PLUS. These are waterproof, powerful binoculars designed for astronomical observations.
In early 2018, two new Levenhuk S NG series microscopes became available for sale. These microscopes are modern and reliable instruments, perfectly suited for both educational institutions and home use.
The release of the long-awaited Levenhuk Heritage BASE and PLUS, binoculars created in collaboration with the well-known Russian Kazan Optical-Mechanical Plant, became the highlight of summer 2018. This limited-edition numbered series includes only 4,000 pieces, 3,000 of which were exported to Europe and the United States.
The beginning of fall brought the update of the basic spotting scope range – we launched the production of the Levenhuk Blaze BASE compact line. In addition, modern Levenhuk Nelson marine binoculars and monoculars became available for sale.
Late September/early October became a very productive time for the company. We released Levenhuk Skyline Travel Sun compact telescopes with solar filters and bags in the kit, colorful Levenhuk Rainbow monoculars, and Levenhuk LabZZ Tellurion, a great visual aid for kid's astronomy or geography lessons. We also added new products to the already existing product series: Levenhuk Atom Binoculars, Levenhuk Broadway Opera Glasses, Levenhuk Wise Monoculars, and Levenhuk DTX Digital Microscope series.
