About us //
The beginnings of ESSEL date back to 1921 when the brand was first recognized as a local shop selling farming tools. Today we are a prominent producer of hydraulic cranes, towing systems, and accessory equipment created by our own team of designers. Products with the ESSEL brand are the result of more than 40 years of the company’s principal production program. Today, we know that quality is based on tradition, and we are proud of our Slovak products.
There have been radical changes in our company since new ownership and management arrived in 2014. One major area of restructuring involves , investments in research and development of new products. We have created a first-class team of designers working with the newest technology who are given creative freedom and space to develop completely new model series of our own products – hydraulic arms and clamshells (grabs), recovering transporters and towing platforms. After three years of intensively developing and testing particular prototypes, we gradually started the production of fundamentally innovative products in 2017, which from the perspective of the ESSEL brand, were seen rather revolutionary than evolutionary.
Innovative products with the ESSEL brand comply with all parameters of modern 21st century machinery. We offer optimal solutions for handling technology to ensure efficient and safe moving of products or materials. Because our products are used on a daily basis , we have built them on the pillars of reliability, safety and durability in order to help our customers work efficiently and benefit their business. Above all, we put customer satisfaction first, therefore, we are continuously striving to understand their needs and provide them with innovative products to succeed.
We possess complex technological backup, allowing us to produce a broad spectrum of products, from single-piece production of prototypes to manufacturing of small series. We are present and involved from the beginning of production to the end. The process itself starts with the purchase of sheet iron, followed by a lively process that gives the future products their shape. We split, burn, form, weld, shape, and apply the final finish coating. All of this inspires us and embodies our slogan: “Shaping the future”
We refuse to remain stagnant and strive for ongoing growth and success. The annual turnover of our company in the last three years has increased by 500 % and the number of employees has almost doubled. We invest systematically and seek to develop our potential to its best. We have a great responsibility for the company and our employees. We have adopted the procedures certified under the standards of EN ISO 9001:2009 and EN ISO 14001:2005. Compliance with the top standards of welding is confirmed by EN ISO 3834.
