E.D.&A. is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2011. The basis of E.D.&A. was laid in 1981 under the wings of Flor D'Handschotter and his wife Agnes Francken. Since the beginning the focus is on the development and assembly of custom-made electronic controls. The first development was a controller for a coffee machine. The organisation has highly developed in recent decades.
Not only does E.D.&A. deal with the development, production and assembly of electronic controllers; E.D.&A. also writes the software and designs the mechanical aspects built around the controllers' electronics. E.D.&A. presents itself more and more as a total solution supplier. E.D.&A. is therefore involved in the installation of the controllers in a casing or an electric cabinet with the cables, push buttons, terminal blocks, power supplies, membrane keyboards, batteries, etc.
In 2009 the company came into the hands of his son Gert D'Handschotter, the current managing director. In recent years, the premises are greatly expanded to more than 2000 m² of offices, testing and storage rooms. A year later E.D.&A. opened its sales office in Hamm, North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany). Gert D'Handschotter expects that the company will further invest in technology and personnel in the coming years.
The current workforce counts 40 employees. As an innovative manufacturer of embedded controllers E.D.&A. closely follows new technologies and their applications. That is why E.D.&A. is almost constantly looking for highly skilled and highly motivated people to join the team. Their commitment and enthusiasm form the core of the organisation.
