Elatec was founded in 1988 in Munich, Germany with the single purpose of distributing electronic components in Europe.

Over time Elatec’s business focused also on specialization in other areas such as SIM card manufacturing, Communications Security and IPTV. However since the very beginning, one of its main products were RFID readers, which later served as the motivation to manufacture these devices on its own. In order to be able to fully concentrate in this area the RFID department was separated from the rest and transformed to an independent company.

The first major domain which demanded contactless identification was the printing industry, which Elatec started delivering to in 2005. A few years later the first multi-technology RFID reader – the TWN3 was developed. It helped to enter international markets and at the same time it was the foundation of the TWN4 MultiTech – the multi-technology, multi-frequency RFID reader, which is so versatile, that it can be easily integrated in pretty much every industrial application demanding proximity identification. Currently Elatec is represented by several offices on all continents.
