Erhardt+Leimer Do Brasil LTDA., Brazil

E+L Brazil was founded in Sao Paulo in 1974 and was one of the first E+L subsidiaries in the world. The strong growth of the Brazilian economy allows ELB to erect its own factory building in Guarulhos in 1983, next to today's international airport. A high level of added value in the country allowed the company to be the core supplier to the Brazilian textiles industry.

The opening of the Brazilian market from 2000 onwards applied heavy external pressure on the Brazilian economy, causing deep structural changes.

In 2014, as part of the adaption process of the Brazilian economy, ELB moved into a new building in the Av Santos Dumon in Guarulhos and now, with 20 employees, can offer sales and service for the entire South American market.
