LEKTRO: Leaders in Towbarless Aircraft Tugs

LEKTRO, Inc is a second generation, family-owned business guided by the idea that hard work and quality materials produce stellar results. Building on Wilt Paulson’s innovative foundations laid in 1945, his son Eric has shepherded the company to become the worldwide leader in emissions free towbarless aircraft tugs.

FirstAirporter1We produce a wide variety of towbarless aircraft pushback tractors, each uniquely suited for their class of operation. Whether you need to move a piston engined aircraft, business jet, commercial airliner, or a military aircraft, there is a LEKTRO model built for you.

LEKTRO has built a reputation since its inception as a pioneering electric vehicle manufacturer. We built the first electric mink feeder, the first electric golf cart and the first towbarless aircraft tug, which was also electric.
