History of El-O-Matic

El-O-Matic™ develops and manufacturers actuators for the automation of industrial valves. Our product range includes pneumatic actuators, electric actuators and a wide range of control accessories. Product development is based on modular construction that allows for fast delivery from stock components and easy upgrade to control units.

El-O-Matic™  was established in 1973. Initially as a subcontract machine shop, the company soon specialised in the manufacture of pneumatic actuators. The growing need for process automation led to the development and production of accessories, such as switch boxes and valve positioners. The year 1987 saw the production of the first electric actuators.

National Units
The El-O-Matic™  world-wide net work was quickly established, in 1978 - just five years after the company was founded - the first national unit was opened in Germany. This was followed by units in the U.S.A (1982), United Kingdom and Singapore (1985), India (1990), and South Africa (1994). El-O-Matic™  now has an extensive international network of sales offices and distributors, providing efficient logistics and guaranteeing world-wide availability. 

In 1995 the company was acquired by Emerson Electric, an American multinational conglomerate consisting of more than 300 companies and divisions. El-O-Matic™  is part of its Process Management division.  For El-O-Matic™ , the merger provides all the resources for continued expansion and growth. Our engineering development makes regular use of the gigantic reservoir of process-automation knowledge available within Emerson's Industrial Automation divisions.
