46 years of experience Container handling has been our business since 1974. That makes 46 years of heavy responsibility. Today the once small startup has transformed into the world's leading independent spreader manufacturer, run by an ambitious team of >200 coworkers. And the ELME core concept and philosophy has been the same since day one – quality, simplicity, reliability and safety. Serving customers on seven continents Our customers are located on seven different continents and include both internationally recognized OEMs, as well as end users who use ELME spreaders as their standard working tool for their equipment. That’s what we call a worldwide presence. 23,000 delivered spreaders Since 1974, more than 23,000 ELME spreaders have been attached to lift trucks, reach stackers, straddle carriers and cranes all over the world. Today, the annual production exceeds 1,100 units and the product range has broadened to now cover not only truck and crane spreaders, but also a wide range of special equipment and slave attachments.
