elero is one of the world's largest manufacturers of electric drives and control units for intelligent building automation. A second business unit in Pößneck, Thuringia, develops and manufactures electric linear actuators. The drive manufacturer is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Italian Nice group, which specialises in the roller shutter and sun protection sector within Nice.
The company, based in Schlierbach near Stuttgart, was founded in 1964. "No more pulling roller shutters by hand" – this simple thought was what got elero started. Since then, the company has made that its mission: roller shutters, awnings, venetian blinds, textile screens, roller blinds and rolling doors electrically at the touch of a button. From the workshop of yesteryear, a global player has emerged that regularly sets new standards in home automation.
elero is a company of the Nice group, a global manufacturer of smart home, security and building automation solutions based in Oderzo, Italy. Nice employs more than 3,000 people in five continents and have 15 R&D centres and production facilities serving partners and customers in over 100 countries. With its comprehensive product portfolio, Nice provides a complete ecosystem for buildings.
The vision is "a world without barriers". Improving our quality of life, safety, living comfort and energy efficiency is at the heart of everything we do.
Development, production, quality control and assembly are still performed in Germany to this day. In 2017, elero built a new company building for this purpose on 16,600 square metres in Schlierbach. Founding the "Sun Shading Solutions" business unit at the beginning of 2021 set a major course for further international development in the sun protection market segment. This business division, which is headed by elero's managing director Enzo Viola, is responsible for all of the Group's sun shading activities. Elero's expertise in this sector as well as the strength of Nice as an active global player should expand and secure the market position on an international level in the future.
"We are convinced that an intelligent system enabling comprehensive control of light and temperature significantly improves our well-being and living comfort. That is why we respond to the market's demands of the market with continuous further developments and offer proven drive technology for almost every requirement in addition to innovative control systems," says Enzo Viola. The second business unit in Pößneck, Thuringia, develops and manufactures electric linear actuators for façade construction and pergolas, solar technology, agricultural technology and the industry.
elero's automation solutions reflect the manufacturer's expertise and decades of experience. The products' high quality and innovative concepts set them apart. Recently, the company set a new standard in roller shutter automation with the quiet RolMotion roller shutter drive and the solar-powered RolSolar M-868 DC.
Thanks to the high product quality and customised solutions, elero is a valued market partner in the industry. The manufacturer develops OEM-labelled drives and control systems as well as customised product solutions for major international customers. In keeping with the worldwide presence, the products meet all the requirements of the global market – e.g. for the OEM business for purchasing components for elero systems or for export to China (CCC certificate) and the USA (UL approval).
elero also places equal importance on personal contact and individual service for the specialist trade. A series of installation videos shows practical tips and tricks for quick and easy installation of elero products. The focus is on the RolTop drive series and the RolMotion whisper drives.
