Part of Elta Group

Across all of our people, in all of our businesses, on all continents on which we operate, Elta Group has one purpose: To enhance life through air.

For 20 years we have been a proudly independent, family-owned group, but our foundations were laid over 45 years ago. Our foundations were built on an entrepreneurial spirit and a clear vision of meeting market needs and improving air quality. These have seen us become a leader in high-integrity solutions that move, filter, treat and distribute air, from agriculture to building services to applied technology. We’re never standing still, always living and breathing our cause, and looking to the horizon.
