elobau: Definitely ready for the future
Listed on our delivery notes are components, systems and solutions for off highway vehicles, machine safety and level measurement. Everything based on contactless sensor technology. Everything customised. Everything of high quality. What doesn’t appear on our delivery notes: future security. Our expertise is included in the purchase of every product. Everything that our company does is focused on being a reliable partner for the long term – for our customers, employees and for our ecological and social environment. From the way in which we develop and produce our products to our view of the holistic responsibility of a company.
Continuity in the base technology
elobau was founded in 1972 with the invention of a magnetic proximity switch on reed contact basis for a hay distribution system. Since then, we have remained true to contactless sensors and their unbeatable advantages. Reed contacts require no power supply, are extremely robust and can be integrated in the electronic communication of machines or off highway vehicles. Thanks not least of all to this extensive experience, elobau today is among the world’s leading suppliers of contactless sensor technology.
Solution competency and service-provider gene
elobau was never a classic manufacturer of standard products. Even for the very first customer in the company’s history, a complete system was offered: elobau supplied the required control system for the newly developed reed contact. Development partnerships based on equal footing are our goal for every collaboration. elobau, therefore, places value on stable developer teams and contact persons for every customer – independent of whether for the overnight production of a prototype for a specific product variant or for a custom product that is developed together over several years. Continuity and flexibility through short decision-making channels are the results.
Hunger for innovation and a culture of change
Innovative solutions are our passion, agile work and the ability to change are our mission as a forward-looking company. We invest an above-average 10 per cent of our sales in research and development. More than 40 patented inventions and ongoing optimizations in our customer orders are the results. We are thereby able to constantly secure new competitive advantages for our customers and strengthen our own market position for the long term. For us, innovation and change also mean acting as a driving force by constantly offering our markets future-proof developments. A current example is the development of our modularly structured, standardized armrest. This will consist of up to 75% of bio-based materials – a pioneering project in our industry.
