Logistics BusinessForklift Safety Specialist Elokon Celebrates 25 Years

ELOKON GmbH, developer of electronic assistance systems for forklift trucks and mobile robots, is looking back on 25 years of successful company history. To mark this occasion, a small group (due to Corona  restrictions) attended the presentation of the certificate on June 19th by Dr. Paul Raab (left) from the IHK Kiel to the managing partner, Dr. Volker Auerbach (right). The roots of the company go back to the mid 80’s, when ELOKON was founded as an engineering office for the development of special electronics. The renaming to “ELOKON Sicherheitstechnik” and the change of legal status to a GmbH took place in 1995.

Over the years, ELOKON has developed into an internationally recognised brand with 4,250 customers in more than 40 countries, with subsidiaries in Great Britain, the USA and Poland and with seven major industry awards to its name. The company offers a wide range of innovative assistance and safety systems, all designed to increase employee safety and vehicle productivity in the warehouse. The backbone of its product portfolio consists of distance warning systems, mobile personal protection systems, fleet management systems, stationary warning and radar systems for speed reduction.

“A very special thank you goes to our customers who have relied on ELOKON for their orders day after day for more than three decades and with whom we cooperate very intensively in the further development of our product solutions,” said Dr. Auerbach. “A special thanks also goes to our employees – especially now in these extraordinary times – each of whom is doing a great job looking after our customers with great products and reliable service”.

“In the past three years, we have substantially expanded our R&D department to enable us to continue to increase our product portfolio and to grow into one of the leading international suppliers of safety and assistance systems – not only for forklift trucks, but also for driverless transport systems and mobile robots. ELOKON is looking forward to shaping the future of intralogistics together with our customers and partners in the next 25 years.”
