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.

We 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. These and several other electric vehicles gave LEKTRO the reputation as “The Electric Vehicle People.” Our manufacturing facility in Warrenton, Oregon, has over 80 employees. Many are second or third generation workers. It’s widely known that LEKTRO is not just a company, it is a family. This extends from our fabricators to our customer service representatives.
