ELME Spreader – The World-leading Independent Spreader Manufacturer
ELME Spreader supports companies worldwide with container handling solutions that make their work easier and more profitable. Over a period of four decades, our customers have attached over 22,000 ELME spreaders to their lift trucks, reach stackers, straddle carriers and cranes.
Started as a one man activity in 1974, today, ELME Spreader employs over 200 highly qualified people, who develop, design, produce, market and service over 1,100 spreaders annually. Every single spreader is built at the plant in Älmhult where all the work is carried out – from start to finish it’s an all In-house production. This unique approach, resulting in 100% control over the production and final quality of the products, has made ELME Spreader the world’s leading independent spreader manufacturer.
The ELME Spreader product range includes spreaders for cranes, straddle carriers, lift trucks and reach stackers for ISO container handling and spreaders for intermodal handling, allowing the spreader to handle swap bodies, trailers and bottom lift containers. We also offer a wide range of piggyback slave attachments and special equipment for cranes and trucks together with our range of approved spare parts – ELME Genuine Parts.
Our customers are located on seven different continents and include both internationally recognized OEM manufacturers as well as end users, who use ELME spreaders as their standard working tool for their equipment.
