Sinsheim 21st January 2014 - For more than 60 years, the Gebhardt Fördertechnik GmbH stands for
innovative internal material handling solutions - not only in Germany but around the world. "In order
to maintain and even further expand this, it is important that we are able to rely on our worldwide
partners," said Marco Gebhardt, Director of Gebhardt Fördertechnik GmbH. The British company
ECS, based in Nottingham, has been distributing the entire Gebhardt product range in the UK and
Ireland since 1992. Within this successful collaboration over 20 years, the two family owned
businesses have developed a close partnership.
Since already more than one year, the Gebhardt Group holds 100 percent of the British company
whose product portfolio matches and compliments that of Gebhardt Fördertechnik. Also its name
was rebranded to Gebhardt European Conveyor Systems Ltd. Co. (short: Gebhardt ECS Ltd.). The
entire ECS team remained on board with its approximately 20 employees from the areas of sales,
production, installation, control system design and service.
