A second-generation family company
The idea for ELA’s sophisticated room containers first came into being in 1972 when Bernhard Albers and his wife Elisabeth Albers founded the company ELA-Gesellschaft für Handel und Vermittlung GmbH & Co. KG. The couple was quick to identify the growing demand for flexible rooms and developed mobile container-based room solutions that could be tailored to meet individual specifications. As the second generation of the family, the siblings Tim Albers, Liesel Albers-Bentlage and Günter Albers took over the management of ELA Container GmbH in the 1980s. After the retirement of Tim Albers, the company has been managed by Liesel Albers-Bentlage and Günter Albers as dual leaders since 2023. With personality, technical knowledge and a keen sense for economic developments, the siblings consistently keep the company on course for the future.
