Eltra is a leading distributor of electric DIY material. The territory of this innovative company is based in Temse in East Flanders, with premises of 11 500 m². It has 90 employees working in its offices, packaging department and warehouse.
From 1995, Eltra is part of the Sonephar Group. In 2001, Eltra took over the Dutch electro- and lightning distributor Elar and in 2009, Eltra integrated the DIY activities of Unilectric, a Belgian wholesaler in electrical material, lightning, electric household appliances, noise and vision, that already was property of Sonephar.
