Elcor - Who we are
Quality and ease of use are at the heart of everything we do. With our proximity to the market and unique expertise in electrical panel design and fabrication, we can deliver tailor-made solutions with short delivery times. Proximity to production provides our customers with a very cost-effective project follow-up and testing of the switchboard systems.
Elcor is a name that says a lot about what we do. The name is composed of the words “Electro” and “Cor”. It thus emphasizes that electrical panels and switchboards are the very core and heart of the electrical systems that are necessary for rigs, ships, and buildings to function.
We have an organization that has considerable know-how in the production of reliable and high-quality solutions that are user-friendly with low life cycle costs. As an independent electrical panel builder, we offer the flexibility needed to specifically tailor electrical panels and panel systems to customer needs. With several departments in the country, we have a unique proximity to the market, and we take pride in delivering finished and tested products on time.
Five founders, led by Knut Husebø, established Forus Elektro Automatikk AS in 1990 to build electrical panels. The company has developed into one of the largest panel builders in the Nordic region. This has happened through organic growth and acquisitions of other companies. In March 2007, new owners acquired Forus Elektro Automatikk AS. In the spring of 2010, the holding company split our land-based division in Eastern Norway, and Forus Elektro Automatikk AS became owned by an external investor 55% and the original founders 45%. Forus Elektro Automatikk AS changed its name to Elcor AS in August 2014.
Elcor is today the Nordic region’s largest factory within electrical and automation panels and delivers “the heart” in all installations. Our head office is located in Stavanger with branches in Hokksund and Skarnes.
We deliver to all segments within land-based industrial applications, the offshore and maritime segments. We have our own service departments consisting of 11 service cars and cover the whole country.
Elcor is an independent supplier and this ensures that our engineers can adapt and tailor solutions to the customer’s unique needs.
