elisto – good combinations

elisto GmbH has been a flexible and quality-oriented partner for companies all over the world.

Household name companies have relied upon our detailed and comprehensive solutions for a broad spectrum of tasks, using them to safeguard and indeed increase their competitiveness.


A solid knowledge of material properties and their physical and chemical interactions has formed the cornerstone for our working philosophy, making elisto a globally successful supplier of composite solutions and high-tech insulating materials.


The high level of motivation of our staff and our extensive quality assurance have guaranteed a consistently high level of quality in all production and service areas, and have made our branded products a synonym for safety and reliability in insulation technology.


Since its founding in 1988, elisto GmbH has been offering a comprehensive customer-oriented and innovative all-round service. Today, elisto GmbH and its subsidiaries are developing and producing their own THERMOSTAR® semi-finished products as well as machined precision parts and GRP/CFRP components for machine and plant construction on over 4,000 m² of factory space.


Our business activities are spread amongst two locations, i.e. the head office of elisto GmbH in Kreuztal and another location in Kirchhundem.
