History of The Brand
EVVA manufactures and designs mechanical and electronic access control systems. It was founded in Vienna in 1919 and has always been a family-owned business. They run research and development at their production facilities and their headquarters in Vienna. They are reliable, as they want to help keep their customers informed with any queries or concerns that they may have – they’re experts in the trade.
EVVA was established in 1919, with the first lock in 1937. Ever since, they had modernisation measures in the 1970s, and have become one of Europe’s leading security companies. EVVA was set up as a family-owned business and has stayed true to its fundamental values and innovation throughout the years. In 1919, three engineers decided to bring together their inventive spirit, as they established a company trading as Erfindungs-Versuchs-Verwertungs-Anstalt, with the goal of bringing together ideas and inventions. EVVA now has over 200 national and international patents to this day.
In 1937, a time of global unrest, EVVA increased its efforts to make everyone safe, and thus developed its first patent for a cylinder padlock. Their success laid the foundations for the next decades of the company’s brilliance. In 1970, the family-owned company changes from an industrial company to a cutting-edge security enterprise as they invested in machinery and extension of in-house research. They continue to lead with innovation and inquisition, as 20 inventors and engineers permanently create new ideas and implement them as future-proof locking systems.
Modernisation continued after the 1970s, as Sven Berlage established a worldwide network, thus meaning EVVA became a European enterprise, with subsidiaries in countries across the world.
Now under the management of Stefan Ehrlich-Adám, EVVA is proving that family-owned business can have global impact and prestige. EVVA is a leading manufacturer of security and technology in Europe and has ten subsidiaries in ten countries. They use tried and tested innovations to excel their company into the future. We trust the long history of EVVA, as they’ve pioneered the lock and security industry for decades, so we know you’ll receive a quality product when you buy from them.
