But our approach is extremely contemporary.
Leitz folders are the German predecessors of the Swiss "Bundesordner". The man who developed them over 100 years ago? Louis Leitz. A rigid cardboard cover with a steel mechanism has made history in the world of document archiving.
Even now our guiding principle is the same: businesses need to archive and retrieve documents quickly, securely, and in an organized manner. That’s why the ELO Digital Office product family still includes folders, file archives, and index files. It makes everything relatively simple and, more importantly, user-friendly. And that’s hardly surprising. After all, ELO stands for nothing other than Elektronischer Leitz Ordner (Electronic Leitz Folders). Whether we’re talking about folders on a desk or on a PC or server, it makes no difference.
