Production is performed in a highly automated purpose-built factory that during 2008 produced over 1150 spreaders. This is completed using high quality components to ensure high quality and reliability for our customers at competitive prices.

ELME's innovative modular spreader concept combined with design simplicity and market feedback is all characteristic of ELME.

Our spreaders are supplied to lift trucks, reach stackers, straddle carriers, gantry, quayside and ship-to-shore container cranes worldwide to some twenty OEM’s and end-users.

Crane Spreaders

ELME provides a wide range of crane spreaders, including intermodal spreaders, harbour crane spreaders and a selection of crane spreader attachments. The ELME intermodal crane spreader model 8520 and 8530 is recognised for its durable performance in container handling applications. This intermodal crane spreader is ideal for combined container and trailer handling on either rail mounted cranes or tyred gantry versions.

ELME's crane spreader Model 8200 can be used on quayside cranes, making it ideal for ship to harbour container handling. Demonstrating a capacity of 45t, this telescopic quayside crane spreader can safely handle loaded ISO containers.

Fixed length spreaders and rotators are also available from ELME.

ELME also specialises in the manufacture and supply of industry proven truck spreaders. This product range includes laden, intermodal and empty truck spreaders to meet a wide range of customer requirements and spreader specifications.

The specific design of both the Model 815 telescopic truck and Model 320 spreaders makes them the choice for use on fork lift trucks' forks. For intermodal requirements, the Model 852 spreader forms a combined container and trailer, also suitable for forks.

The ELME lift truck spreader Model 517 is designed for empty ISO containers and for use in conjunction with reach stackers. ELME has utilised this model since the 1970s, making it a trusted choice.
