ELESA entered the UK market late in the ’50s through a local distributor. After taking over the former distributor, in 1991 the ELESA Group consolidated its presence on the market with the establishment of ELESA (UK) Ltd. A full localised stockholding of standard elements, technically trained staff and an on-site machining service combine to provide a wealth of knowledge when dealing with applications for standard machine elements, thus offering the correct technical solution whatever the requirement. Close liaison with engineers from the ELESA R&D department allow for the study of special technical solutions, where the focus may be performance, aesthetics or product ergonomy.
