About Us

About the company

PILE ELBUD has been present on the Polish power engineering market for 20 years.

The beginnings of the company date back to the year 2000. PILE ELBUD (Przedsiębiorstwo Instalacji Linii Elektroenergetycznych ELBUD) was established on the basis of engineering and technical staff originating from Przedsiębiorstwo Budownictwa Elektroenergetycznego ELBUD Kraków. As a professional company we specialize in comprehensive implementation of investment projects for the entire power industry, starting from designing and acquiring the right of way through completion of deliveries, execution and commissioning to handing over the facility to the Investor.

The Company is also developing the scope of its activities related to the implementation of innovative energy projects related mainly to renewable energy sources and the broadly understood energy storage.

Using the extensive knowledge and experience of our engineering and technical staff, we apply and systematically implement the most modern design and technology solutions, which allows us to ensure the highest quality in our investment projects.

By maintaining full readiness of installation crews and equipment, we are ready to start removing reported failures immediately. We build facilities for the Ministry of Energy: the transmission system operator - Polskie Sieci Elektroenergetyczne; distribution system operators such as TAURON, PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna, ENEA, ENERGA; energy telecommunications and railway energy – PKP Energetyka – Obsługa Sp. z o.o. The Company's customers are also investors from outside the power sector.

The high quality of workmanship and non-conflicting cooperation allows us to satisfy the most demanding Investors.

All this, as well as the effort and commitment of our employees in the continuous development of the company, resulted in the prestigious membership in the elite Business Gazelle Club by Puls Biznesu monthly, as well as qualification to the group of the most dynamically developing companies.

Human Resources Potential

The engineering and technical staff has professional experience, relevant qualifications, including building authorizations to conduct independent functions within the scope of their specialities.

Our employees have completed and hold certificates of completion of courses and trainings authorizing them to perform specialized assembly, measurement and service work.
