E.G.O. Elektro-Gerätebau GmbH
The E.G.O. Group: a global technology company with a regional background
E.G.O., headquartered in Oberderdingen, is known around the world as a leading supplier to household appliance manufacturers. The cornerstone for this remarkable development was laid more than 80 years ago when Karl Fischer invented the first electric hotplate suitable for series production. With this product he not only revolutionized and simplified cooking, but created the basis for a company that is still one of the most important innovators in the industry.
Today the company supplies all heating and control elements needed for cooking and baking, for washing and drying, and for dishwashers. In addition to the household appliance products, E.G.O. also supplies components, systems and complete appliances for the restaurant industry and professional laundries and complex components for medical equipment, building services and the automotive industry.
Through systematic expansion at home and abroad and a multitude of important innovations, the E.G.O. Group has ultimately become what it is today: A company with a worldwide reputation.
Today E.G.O. has production and distribution companies in 21 locations across 18 countries. With approximately 6,000 employees around the world, the company generated over EUR 530 million in turnover in 2011. E.G.O. is not only a multinational enterprise; it also has a clear view of its place in the world. The company is therefore already thinking about the future and demonstrating a strong commitment to preserving the environment.
Protection of the environment is systematically anchored in the company management and ecological factors are taken into consideration in all of our day-to-day work and policy decisions. The company also considers the innovate use of energy for households and the commercial sector to be a part of this. Such concepts can usually only be usefully efficient through the cooperation of all involved energy consumers, energy producers and network operators who ideally should all speak a common language. By using EEBus technology in your products, the E.G.O. group of companies uses a network concept that is modular, open and standards-based and one which closes the last technological gap between energy provider and the intelligent consumer.
