Yesterday today

Always new perspectives

ELK history


was the year when an idea came to fruition: what would it be like to set up a company where professionalism and expertise held equal importance, where the hierarchies were flat and the employees were given the opportunity to actively participate in the decision-making process? What would happen if economic success and personal achievement held the same value? The answer is: ELK.


By the end of the 1980s we start to develop control units.


The first additional employees for production find their place at ELK.

The founders of ELK - a limited company - have held true to their idea. And it is for this reason that the principles behind ELK have helped it develop into a success story - both for us and our customers. We strive to tackle every task from a new angle through thinking outside the box and challenging established solutions. Moreover, we never let compromises or limitations hold us back; on the contrary, we are guided by the conviction that we are on the right track.

Pandemic and ELK: ELK GbmH was also not uneffected and made use of the job retention scheme for the first time. Because we had already included home office into our daily business, in the past, it was possible for ELK to overcome these unusual times together, with the excellent support of the workforce.
