About Elektor

About Elektor – Our Roots

Elektor has been a household name in the global world of electronics for more than six decades. With the publication of Elektuur in the Netherlands in 1961, we helped launch and drive the first electronics maker movement. And since then, our global electronics design community has grown to include hundreds of thousands of devoted members and technical experts who speak English, German, Dutch, and French.

Elektor Publications – The Source for Electronics Enthusiasts

Elektor International Media – which is headquartered in Susteren, The Netherlands — publishes the electronics-related magazine ElektorMag (English, German, Dutch, and French editions), books, and digital content (e.g., websites and newsletters). The English edition of ElektorMag is distributed in North America (the USA and Canada) with ISSN 1947-3753 and in the UK and elsewhere with ISSN 1757-0875.

Elektor is publishing 8 ElektorMag issues throughout the year. Within the ElektorMag readers can find a great selection of electronics projects, news, tutorials, and more matching a certain category. Each project is backed up with related products which can be bought in the Elektor Store (www.elektor.com).

Throughout the years, Elektor has evolved from a magazine and book publisher into a multimedia community platform that services professional electrical engineers, makers, and companies looking to engage with them. Today, with its magazines (ElektorMag), digital properties (Elektor Labs, websites, and Newsletter), and webshop, the company enables members of the global engineering community to affordably and efficiently design, share, and sell electronics.
