90 years of elumatec – Join our treasure hunt!

In 2018 elumatec is celebrating its 90th anniversary. We are of course using the occasion to look back at our company history, and in particular the machines which have helped write our history. And we're looking for your help!

We are on the hunt for elumatec machines from years gone by, and the stories behind them. We have therefore rummaged through our image archive and already found one or two treasures, such as the MOF 11 Upper Hand Saw from 1951 and the KF 178, a copy routing masterpiece - machines with which elumatec set the standard for others to follow.

Like the SBZ 151 Edition 90, our current special anniversary model, these machines were always one step ahead of their time. They stood for pioneering quality and met the highest demands in efficiency and functionality.

We are looking for the best bits from nine decades, and we need your help!

When looking for special machines from the past, we realised that a number of our most important machines are missing from our collection. So we would be delighted if you could help us out. Have you got old machines at home, perhaps even ones that you still use? Have a hunt and take a photo of them! Whether it's a well-maintained machine that means a lot to you or whether it's a real rarity, join our treasure hunt and send us a photo of your treasured machine by 31 December 2018, along with a photo of its nameplate, by e-mail to schatzsuche(at)elumatec.com.

To make the search even more exciting, we're also looking for a record: we want to find the oldest elu or elumatec metal construction machine still in operation!

We're very excited to hear from you. But before you start hunting, please remember that there should be no people visible in your photos, owing to data and privacy laws. By taking part, you also confirm that you own all rights to the photos. In addition, by sending us your photos you give elumatec AG and its associated group companies full, non-exclusive rights to use the photos, in particular the right to reproduce, publish and edit the photos, with no restrictions on time or location. If we choose to publish your photos, we will contact you again.

Thank you in advance for taking part!
