Where once we were more known for the upscale, modern appearance and capacitive touch of our electronic controls, we are now becoming better known for our cutting edge connectivity.
Bolingbrook, IL (PRWEB) November 02, 2016
The Bolingbrook, Illinois-based electronic controls design, engineering and manufacturing firm Elan Industries has enjoyed a positive year of growth in response to their customer’s needs for connectivity with their imaginative and sophisticated electronic controls.
“We built the company on our ability to customize and design sleek, attractive looking platform controls to regulate temperature, speed and other parameters on our customer’s appliances, like pizza ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators, ranges and ice makers. Today’s appliance manufacturers are looking for much more,” said Todd Thomas, partner at Elan Industries. “Our engineering solutions provide them with unrestricted access to their appliances, both on and off-site.” Thomas said that the end user of the technology can monitor or receive alerts of any time-critical or temperature-critical equipment maintenance needs while they are away from their restaurant, kitchen or laboratory. For the original equipment manufacturer (OEM), it means offering a high quality, premium option to customers, opening new markets for their appliances and even remote diagnosis of maintenance issues, all at a competitive price.
Elan Industries has been developing custom controls for best-in-class appliance OEMs since 1999. Last year, the company moved from their 10,000 square foot space just miles away, to their current, 34,000 sq. ft. location at 650 S. Schmidt Road in Bolingbrook, IL. The larger office space allows for more staff, like their new Director of Engineering who joined in March. The move also doubled their engineering and testing lab and manufacturing area where they design, test and produce their newly designed electronic controls.
Elan’s customer base is comprised of best-in-class OEM manufacturers who consider Elan a key strategic partner. They currently have more than 100 custom electronic controls in production, ranging from the simplest temperature control to highly complex multi-function platform controls. Elan controls can be found on appliances worldwide.
Their new developments came with a new identity as a leader in IoT technology, spurring them to launch their new website at elanindustries.com. There they introduced products from ElanConnect™, the engineering arm of Elan offering solutions for end users and OEMs who seek connectivity with their appliances through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, apps and other innovations.
“Where once we were more known for the upscale, modern appearance and capacitive touch of our electronic controls, we are also now becoming known for our cutting edge connectivity,” said Thomas. “We feel like it’s a new era for the company and it is an integral part of our commitment to provide innovative solutions to our customers.”
