ebm-papst Slovenija d.o.o. is a producer of small electrical motors and fans. The company is one of the leading players in the industry of motors for household appliances in Europe and worldwide in terms of quality, quantity and flexibility.
The manufacturer was first located in the vicinity of the 500-years-old town Idrija, which is where it got its first company name, Ydria. The town Idrija is known as one of the largest mercury mine in the world and famous for the Idrija lace.
It developed from the former plant of Iskra from Zelezniki, which later became Iskra Rotomatika, then Rotomatika, part of which finally became Ydria Motors. Due to problems with space, the company decided in 2002 to find a more suitable location and moved to Podskrajnik, the Municipality of Cerknica.
The company is wholly owned by ebm-papst Landshut GmbH with a wide spread sales network all over the world. Ydria Motors d.o.o. exports as much as 95% of its production and only 5% is sold on the domestic market.
In 2006 it established a new international logistics centre which is in charge of accepting materials and dispatching equipment from the parent company in Landshut and Mulfingen and distributing products directly to end buyers. It is also a system supplier of electrical motors and fans for key customers - producers of top-class home appliances such as Miele, Bosch-Siemens, Gorenje, AEG, and Electrolux.
The company manufactures more than one thousand different end products, differing in terms of appearance and integration options (drying and washing machines, refrigerators, fan and microwave ovens, independent fans).
