EFCO Maschinenbau GmbH

A profile of our company

The company EFCO Maschinenbau GmbH was established in Düren/Germany in 1978 by the graduate engineer Mr. Ranko Effenberger. Even at that time he already had decades of experience, and can be called a pioneer in this field.

Since its establishment in 1978, EFCO has become a leading developer and manufacturer of repair and testing equipment, both in terms of market share and technological progress.
The products are sold in more than 80 countries through our own sales organization as well as through competent distribution partners.

The construction of machines and devices for the machining, repair and testing of valves, flanges and pipes of all kinds are EFCO’s core competence.

All our products are developed by us, and tested during extensive action. The product development is influenced by the experience that many of our customers have made during their various assignments.

One of our highest priorities is to secure the production and development at this location in the long term. Only a few manufacturers rightfully bear the "Made in Germany" quality mark which is accepted worldwide.

EFCO has been certified to ISO 9001 since 1996.

Our company motto is customer-orientation. The intensive dialogue with our customers enables us to provide the optimum benefit to our partners worldwide, often by finding solutions jointly. To support our global sales activity, we have subsidiaries, representatives, sales offices and agents as well as joint ventures in many countries on several continents. This market presence enables us to quickly react to customer requests in detail and to integrate these requests into our continuous development programme.

A competent and experienced management team secures the development and other facilities of this successful family company, now in its second generation. EFCO has specialised from the start in the design of precision machinery and equipment for the repair and machining of sealing faces in and on valves, flanges and pipelines etc. and is characterised by innovative own developments.
