The LEHR Story
The ideas behind LEHR Incorporated were born during a series of long, cold nights spent converting gasoline engines to run on propane aboard the research vessel the Sea Surveyor at work in the North Sea. Having already used propane to power small engines on several other ships in his years at sea, Captain Bernardo Jorge Herzer CEO and founder of LEHR knew he had something. "Propane is just safer, more efficient and more reliable," said Captain Herzer, "that's why we used it on our ships." Five years later, with corporate offices, and an R&D center at its "green" headquarters in Los Angeles, California, LEHR is now a groundbreaking leader in the research and development of environmentally friendly technology.

Making A Difference
“On behalf of the American Lung Association, I want to congratulate Bernardo and the LEHR team on the prestigious honor of an EPA Clean Air Excellence Award. We are all fighting for clean air and it is important for companies like LEHR to create products that will help reduce the amount of damage we are doing in our everyday lives. All of us at the American Lung Association look forward to a long relationship with LEHR.”
Jane Warner - President of the American Lung Association
“Brilliant innovations-most of them, at least-make their greatest contributions once they become products people can buy. LEHR’s four stroke string trimmer produces far less pollution and is more convenient than the two stroke gas and oil machines it can replace. We’re very honored to select you and your team to receive a 2009 Breakthrough Award for the LEHR Eco Trimmer.”
James B. Meigs - Editor in Chief of Popular Mechanics
“We can cut air pollutant emissions immediately by expanding the use of clean, low-carbon propane at home, at work and on the road. Even a seemingly small choice like a propane fueled grass trimmer can make a significant difference for the environment.”
Roy Willis - President of the Propane Education and Research Council
