About Elektron

The success story of Elektron began in 1942 with the establishment of the company by Willi Kerber under the name “Elektron Fabrik für physikalisch-technische Geräte Kerber & Co.” The first actual products were power supplies for stationary batteries on the basis of mercury vapor rectifiers and battery chargers for ships. With the passage of time, the product range was extended: Battery chargers for the automobile sector, power sources for semi-automatic and automatic welding and cutting processes, individual and multiple welding rectifiers for use on ships, movie rectifiers for arc lamps.

In 1952, the rising demand for Elektron products required relocation of the company to its present hometown of Bremen. Elektron began to specialize exclusively in welding and battery service technology and surprised the automobile market time and again with their new and innovative products.

At present, Elektron is represented in more than 60 countries and is world leader in the premium segment for welding equipment, plasma cutting equipment, and battery service equipment. Releases by all important vehicle manufacturers underpin the exceptional position in technology and quality.
