...in 1979: ELKA was founded by the then 28-year-old Hans-Friedrich Eller to market a newly developed garage door drive with toothed rack technology. Over the years the product range was successfully extended, the company grew continuously.
In the beginning of the 1990s, ELKA´s first series of industrial barrier "ES" was developed by the then employee Mr. Pflegel and officially launched to the market in 1994.
After 26 years on the market, the ES series is now going into well-deserved retirement. Its successor, the new INDUSTRIAL - Series S is equipped with a powerful 24V BLDC motor and planetary gear and is well situated to continue the success story of ELKA Industrial barriers.
