History[edit]

Founded in 1922 in Nässjö, Sweden, the original company, was called Elekto Ljus & Kraft, name that was changed to AB Eldon-Verken in 1948.

Initially building electrical installation equipment and selling radios, the latest invention at the time, they soon began manufacturing a junction box designed for the use with electric ovens.

In 1963 the first acquisition was made with the take-over of their biggest competitor, Elektriska Osterman AB. Four years later the Eldon-Osterman companies have merged under the common name of Eldon AB.

In 1967 the company expanded abroad, by opening sales offices in several European Countries, starting with the UK and Belgium.

The Dutch subsidiary was inaugurated in 1970 in the north of Holland, in Drachten.

In 1999 Eldon AB was sold to EQT Partners and in 2006 the new management team acquired the majority shareholding from EQT.
