The foundation stone for this was laid back in 1972 when the company was established, since mechanical parts for the lifebuoys of Starfighters were being manufactured at the time. In the 1990’s, this was followed by the development and manufacture of a conversion kit for transforming a combat helicopter into a SAR helicopter within 30 minutes.
The projects were carried out in close cooperation with the aviation customers. As a medium-sized company with 75 employees, ELMAKO currently manufactures about 6500 individual parts and components for the aviation industry, among other things.
Each product runs through the relevant test procedures. Among other things, a 5-axis measuring machine is used. Assemblies, components and precision parts made from aluminium, steel, titanium, cast iron and plastics are manufactured in house.
