A story of steady growth - Information on our company history

 

1978

Foundation of the company Elektronik Service - Christoph Dichte. In the first years the company produced components for AEG, KEHA, Philips and Siemens.

1984

The legendary floppy accelerator "Speed DOS" for the former Commodore C64 series was manufactured and distributed in our company.
This was followed by the production of relay boards PO 32/RU and PO 32/OU (opto-couplers) for dosing systems. Subsequently we took over the complete production of PO 20 digital printers, including material procurement.

1985

The establishment of a specialist representation for Philips audio video systems led to a significant expansion of the company's product range.
Our most spectacular project in this context was the installation of a discussion and interpreting system with a total of 1000 (!) microphone units in the Karlsruhe Congress Centre.

1986

Elektronik Service - Christoph Dichte now manufactured assemblies for customers in the fields of medical, sun protection, core and building control technology.

1990

Thanks to the good order situation, the production area was increased from 140 to 240 sqm.

1995

In view of the advancing miniaturization in the field of component production, the production facility was expanded to include an SMD assembly line from Siemens.
Due to the increased space requirement of the SMD production, an additional 560 square meters of production space were rented.

2006

The company Elektronik Service - Christoph Dichte has reached a production area of approx. 1200 sqm.

2007

Founding of ESCD GmbH in July 2007.
The succession regulation and increasing order growth are reasons for the refounding.
The shareholders and managing directors of the new company are Christoph Dichte and Jörg Grimsmann.
In the course of the refoundation the production rooms were air-conditioned and the SMD production was modernized again.
The production area was expanded to 1690 sqm.

2008

Expansion of the production area to 2000 sqm. Acquisition of an AOI system.

2009

Acquisition of a Versaflow for lead-free technology, supported by WTSH.

2010

New investment: Acquisition of an ERSA Powerflow N2.

2014

Start of the next expansion phase with the lease of the adjacent site in Jahnstraße with a former tennis court. Expansion of production to include a liquid nitrogen tank.

2015

Planning for the expansion of production capacities by 530 sqm and the relocation of administration from Fährstraße to Jahnstraße is taking shape. Negotiations with the city on a change in the building plan and acquisition of the leased land plot are concluded.
Expansion of production by an X-ray machine from Phönix X-Ray to improve the control of manufactured assemblies and components, as well as customer-specific testing of assemblies and other hardware.

2016

February: Inspection capacities reinforced by Göpel's new AOI system OptiCon AdvancedLine.

May: Acquisition of property. July: Extension of the inspection with a flying probe.

August: Start of construction work in the first construction phase with demolition of the tennis facility.
