A look back…

Hans Damm established the company on 2 January 1972. In the beginning, six employees manufactured testing and transport frames for car radios, among other things. VDO (now Continental), GRUNDIG, Blaupunkt and PFAFF were the most important customers and partners during the first few years.

After just a few years, the order situation had ELMAKO bursting at the seams. The production facility in Baden-Baden became too small. ELMAKO needed more room.

A production hall with 500 square metres and office areas with 175 square metres were built for the 25 employees the company had at the time. Just five years later, the diggers were out again: 500 square metres of production area was added.

In accordance with the motto “Think Big”, in January 1990 Hans Damm decided to construct a production hall with 2000 square metres and an office complex with 1200 square metres.


Now the 75 employees work in production and administration on the 12,000 or so square metre site in the industrial area of Iffezheim. ELMAKO continuously invests in its powerful and modern machine pool.

The company is characterised by its ability to support customers with intelligent and made-to-measure solutions.

ELMAKO is well prepared for the future with its supporting quality philosophy, stable portfolio of long-term customers and innovative strength.
