Elma bv was founded by a German entrepreneur in De Bilt. In the beginning Elma started out as a overhaul and revision company of Electrical Machines; providing also the name of the company. In the course of time Elma focuses itself on the sales of electrical motors.
Elma moves to the current location in Soesterberg. A few years later the shares of Elma were transferred to entrepreneur Mr. Henk Fietje. During the period following Elma focuses more and more upon the sales of turn-key electrical drive and industrial automation projects.
Another important change occurs: the shares were transferred to a new management team:
Dick Varel (General Manager), Teunis van Vulpen (Technical Manager), Peter de Wit (Operational Manager) and Jaap Rook (Financial Manager). Now a days Elma has developed itself as an international dynamic and innovative company employing over 80 people, 2 subsidiaries abroad and satisfied customers.
