History

More than 80 years heading for success!

In 1938 the company OTTO EGELHOF GmbH & Co. KG was founded in Fellbach near Stuttgart.
With the development of expansion valves for automotive air conditioning (HVAC) and temperature controls for domestic technology, the company quickly gained market shares and advanced the know-how on other fields of Control Technology.

New factories were founded in France in Seltz - in 1960 and in Breitenbach - in 1980. Further globalization steps were taken with the development of sales offices in Shanghai in 1998 and in Detroit in 2000.
Worldwide production was expanded during 2005 with the erection of an American factory and a Chinese factory. EGELHOF is also producing in India since 2013.
