From a 2-man company to internationally renowned specialists for custom extraction solutions!

ERBO started out as a family business. Today, we have a permanent nucleus of 25 experts in the sectors of extraction units and filter systems, as well as swarf and scrap handling. All of this has led to happy customers all over the world!

ERBO FILTERSYSTEME GmbH was founded in 1979 in Stuttgart by Günter Boltjes, and was staffed with two employees. In 1986, the company moved to a new office and manufacturing facility with a total area of 300m2.

In 1987, Hans-Jörg Boltjes joined ERBO and the company expanded. The growth of the company has led to the addition of many new customers in the European market.

In 1996, Hans-Jörg Boltjes took over the company from his father and continued the tradition of the family business. Along the way, the company has successfully expanded into the Asian and American markets.

Today, ERBO is one of the most innovative companies of its kind worldwide.

By 1997, ERBO was already employing a staff of 12 and had increased the size of its manufacturing, warehouse, and office space to 600m².

The company continuously delves into new areas of industry, and became the first company to produce an extraction unit for laser processing in the circuit board industry, as well as the first extraction system for edging strips and pressed screens in 2002.

In 2004, the system planning for 3D construction began.

The company, with a high level of expertise in the extraction unit sector, continued to grow. In March 2007, ERBO moved to a new 1800m2 company headquarters in Magstadt.

In 2010, ERBO GmbH delivered their first extraction suction unit for 5-axis-machines. Another reason to celebrate came in 2011 with the delivery of the company’s 600th unit!

Klaus Tomschitz, a long-term employee, was made second managing director in 2014. Shortly after this, the company expanded its office and recreational space by 200m2

Over the years, the company has managed to grow in a consistent and healthy manner, while continuously expanding its expertise.

In 2014, the largest system, for swarf and filings handling, in company history was put into operation. The unit, developed and installed by ERBO, disposes of 4 tons of aluminum swarf and filings per hour! 

In 2015, a centralized extraction unit for chads, swarf, and filings from 80 machines, used for the manufacture of press-bending parts, was installed.

The first, fully-automatic unit developed by ERBO for the extraction and transport of aluminium edging strips and sheet scrap was put into operation in 2016.
