A family business with its finger on the pulse

100% Family owend 

Since it was founded by mail order pioneer Werner Otto in 1965, ECE has been wholly owned by the Otto family. As an owner-managed family business, we can act and operate independently, autonomously and with a long-term approach. This is the basis for our continued corporate success and our sustainable customer relationships.

Perks and activities

We offer our employees attractive benefits and many advantages. So there's no shortage of fun alongside work. Whether it's a summer party, Christmas party or public viewing: There are plenty of opportunities to get together with colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere.

Summer camp

During the summer vacations, some areas of the campus are transformed into oases for the children of our employees. A colorful and supervised program awaits the 6- to 12-year-olds. The event is organized as part of the "Career and Family" project together with our partner pme-Familienservice.

Summer festival

One of the highlights is our ECE summer party on our campus. With cool drinks, burgers, salads and barbecue specialties, we enjoy a relaxed get-together and round off the day on the dance floor.

Girls’ and Boys’ Day

On the nationwide Future Day for Girls and Boys, we open our doors to the next generation. Numerous children take advantage of the taster day and get to know the various areas and departments at ECE on our campus.

Girls and Boys Day

Open-air screening of soccer matches with the family

During the World Cup and European Football Championships, we share in the excitement at public viewings. Not only employees, but also their families are invited to cheer us on.

Jobrad bike program

Healthy employees and a healthy environment are particularly important to us. That's why, in cooperation with JobRad, we turn bicycles and e-bikes into company bikes. We lease the JobRad and give it to our employees to use: for work, in everyday life, on vacation or for sports. The advantage: savings of up to 40 % compared to conventional purchasers.
