Brief history

Altus-Escon-Company BV (Altesco) was founded in 1989 as Analogic Engineering. Its founder already was responsible for the introduction of the plate brake tester in Europe in the early eighties. This experience in the automotive equipment industry resulted in a company which specialised in the early nineties in suspension testing equipment under the brand name Altus. Later Altesco expanded its business into more complex test lanes for passenger cars, heavy vehicles, motorcycles, caravans and trailers.

In 1996, Analogic Engineering acquired Escon International, which had specialised in pneumatic play detectors for passenger cars. From then on the company was called Altus-Escon-Company BV (Altesco). Altesco now expanded its business with hydraulic play detectors for passenger cars and heavy vehicles under the brand name Escon.

In 2000, Altesco acquired Comar. Comar was established in 1985 in The Netherlands as a plate brake tester specialist and a well-known manufacturer of garage equipment under the brand name Comar. Altesco established an even better global position by adding the Comar distributors to the network.
