1878 - 1919


The first of the original four factories to build Elektrim motors was established in 1878 in Bielsko-Biała as a repair workshop for textile machines.

However, it was until 1919, after some years of development, that the company started production of electric motors.

Located in the south of Poland, Bielsko-Biała has 100 industries with rich traditions and, as far as size is concerned, was the second largest center of these industries in Poland.



As collaborative application specialists, we don’t compromise on quality and we don’t compromise on the customer experience. Our customers appreciate that Elektrim expert engineers are in-house and ready to assist in fitting the right electric motor to your unique application requirement.
