Wolfgang Hauck, the founder and head of ECM Germany, has been active in the espresso business for over 25 years. Also, he was highly influential in the institution of Italian espresso culture in Germany.
ECM Manufacture is a team of specialists who combine years of experience with outstanding competence in designing espresso machines. The company has at its disposal a core of highly qualified and experienced staff. The innovative ECM Manufacture espresso machines are produced by our own manufacture in Milan. Additionally, it is marketed selectively worldwide through ECM Manufacture-trained specialist dealers.
Before marketing his own products, Hauck was, for many years, the exclusive importer of Italian espresso machines, such as Gaggia, Cimbali, La Pavoni, Quick Mill, and VBM. For several years, Hauck has been joined in the management by his son, Michael Hauck. Michael adds his own excellent technical expertise and aptitude for design by bringing in new ideas into production and development.
For many years now, ECM Manufacture has established itself as manufacturer of high-end espresso filter holder machines. Like other filter holder espresso machine manufacturers, ECM Manufacture knows how to combine excellent stainless steel design with innovative technology.
ECM Making its Way to 1st-line!
1st-line Equipment met with ECM Manufacture back in October 2011, as we were seeking a replacement line for Rocket espresso machines. Over 2 years, 1st-line voiced concerns to Rocket with respect to their build quality, mainly their frame design, which was inadequate for this level of espresso machine. Although they mentioned no other dealers worldwide had the issues we experienced, we had asked several times to improve the frame on our behalf. They repeatedly and graciously declined until we decided to discontinue the Rocket line in January, 2012.
After we carefully evaluated the ECM Manufacture line, we were please to see that the frame was almost double in thickness when compared to Rocket espresso machines. In fact, we learned that ECM Manufacture had actually produced some machines for the former ECM in Italy. One of the family members of the former ECM now owns a partnership stake in Rocket.
We have also named our models as ECM Germany so as to avoid any confusion with the former Italian ECM company. These machines were designed in Germany but manufactured in Italy. We also apologize that components from this manufacturer will not fit the espresso machines from the former Italian ECM company.
