About us

You can handle it

For over 60 years, our ergonomic transport and lifting equipment has been closing the handling gap between lifting by hand and moving by forklift truck. They have their place wherever individual goods, packages and boxes have to be lifted and transported. Proven for decades, our solutions continuously improve handling and efficiency on the job.

EXPRESSO named TOP 100 Innovator for the 3rd time

In the 29th round of the TOP 100 competition, EXPRESSO was once again able to convince as a think tank. Thus, after 2017 and 2019, we have now also been awarded the TOP 100 seal 2022. Only particularly innovative medium-sized companies are awarded this distinction. On June 24, EXPRESSO will also be honored personally for these achievements by the competition’s mentor, science journalist Ranga Yogeshwar.

Excellent ergonomics – solutions for people

Ergonomics and productivity are directly related. Products from EXPRESSO help to design the working conditions in your company in such a way that the work result becomes optimal. Our special attention to user-friendliness relieves working people and improves the “man-machine interface”.

This is shown not least by the recommendation of the “Forum: Gesunder Rücken – besser leben e.V.” and the (BdR) – “Bundesverband deutscher Rückenschulen e.V.”.

JLU Innovation Award

The award of the Joachim Loh Group is given for particularly innovative products. In 2020, we were honored for the development of the SmartShopper: A cart that changes the shopping experience in supermarkets.
