With over fifty years of experience, we are a competent partner for automation solutions. Since the foundation of Franz Schauer, elrest has grown continuously. The existing production area could be doubled by the purchase of commercial space in 2011. The gained area offers space for further automatic assembly lines, which enables us to increase our capacity enormously and thus our sales volume.
