Whoever works with us, is part of a great team. And nevertheless all employees have the freedom to implement their own ideas and use their knowledge to the best for our customers. That makes us authentic, versatile and strong.

Our hierarchies are flat. So flat that even the managing directors regularly work in all production steps. We appreciate commitment, know-how and responsibility and employees who enjoy what they do.

„ETL is constantly developing. That opens chances and provides security - for myself and for our region.“

Brigitte Natterer,

Order processing and enthusiastic employee for 32 years
