Flexi was invented by a Fox Terrier owner who wanted to give his dog the freedom to move while still being able to restrain him. Inspired by this he initially invented a roll up device for his own personal use. From there the Flexi leash was born, which still remains the pioneer in the market of retractable leashes.
The company was formed in 1973 as a result of the invention of the Flexi retractable leash. Since then it has specialized in the development and the production of retractable leashes according to the philosophy that: "When you specialize in one field only, then you have to maintain the highest standards of perfection!” With its products second to none, Flexi has become a recognized global player in the world market. Today, employing more than 200 people, Flexi is proud to state that their leashes are entirely “Made in Germany”.
Flexi leashes are exclusively manufactured in a modern production plant in Bargteheide, near Hamburg, where an environment has been created that gives employees great pride in their work.
