Elpress focuses on personal hygiene, cleaning systems, industrial washing systems, and service and components. “We are a total supplier of hygienic solutions, with everything in-house: development, production, installation and maintenance,” says Sales and Business Manager Jan Wigman. “There are only a few components that we purchase from or codevelop with our suppliers.” One fairly recent developments is a new cleaning hose that is FDA approved and is the first private-lable hose with certification.
With its own solution-based manufacturing, Elpress stands out from the competition. “We have vast experience and have always been innovative,” Mr. Wigman notes. The company’s portfolio also features standardized solutions across its product groups, which fit together as modules. In service, Elpress offers a subscription packet, covering maintenance, replacement, consultancy and other service-related topics.
Elpress earns twelve million EUR in turnover a year with its 55 employees. The headquarters and production facilities are in Boxmeer, while there is a sales office in Belgium. With its partners Marel and Sealed Air Diversey Care, the company aims to enhance its export markets. Elpress serves the food and beverage industry, along with logistics companies and retailers.
In the near future, Elpress will be meeting the increasing demand for added value, including leasing, maintenance subscriptions, and 3D visualizations and simulations of processes in clients’ facilities. “We want to be the standard in hygiene solutions,” Mr. Wigman points out.
