The origins of ELAFLEX date back to 1923. Our family company developed from a technical distributor to the Navy and shipyards to an internationally leading specialist in refuelling. ELAFLEX - Gummi Ehlers GmbH with its profit centers SAT (hose and fittings department) and ERV (expansion joints department) supplies hose assemblies, rubber expansion joints and fittings for suction and discharge of fuels, chemical products and other liquids. ELAFLEX - Gummi Ehlers GmbH is a leading manufacturer supplying aircraft refuelling hoses and Rubber Expansion Joints throughout the world. ELAFLEX Tankstellentechnik GmbH & Co. (ETT) brings together the ZVA nozzle, petrol pump hose and refuelling accessories. In recognition of the importance attached to this market ETT is a partnership between ELAFLEX and the producer of the nozzles HIBY. Our range of automatic nozzles under the brand name of ZVA was developed at the beginning of the '60s together with the SLIMLINE and C 16 petrol pump hoses. ETT is active world wide and indeed is one of the world market leaders in nozzles and petrol pump hoses especially in the vapour recovery sector (Stage II). Refuelling calls for the highest standards of safety. ELAFLEX has the goal to meet all the challenges in this field by providing "intelligent solutions" together with our proven outstanding quality. ELAFLEX has a well equipped Research and Development department to meet this goal. The cooperation with a large number of standards bodies and its close contact to the customer guarantees that ELAFLEX will always be "state of the art".
