Our founding

Brandon Ellis the Founder of elliTek

elliTek, Inc. was founded by Brandon Ellis in 2009.  It began as an automation integration company with expertise in IoT, factory data management, advanced automation, and motion control.  As time passed, elliTek began to distinguish itself as a strategic solutions-based integration company.

In 2014, elliTek began establishing itself as a premier automation solutions-based distribution company.

Today, elliTek has made its mark on industrial automation through its reputation of offering complete automation solutions by combining the automation products it represents into a complete automation solution.


Why would Brandon start a company in 2009?  Inspiration can strike anywhere.  For Brandon, his Ah-Ha moment occurred on a plant floor in a rural community in Tennessee.  Under much duress, Brandon thought, "Why can't we create a platform that empowers the plant floor engineer instead of continuing to require weeks of complex, custom programming on every project?" 


There must be a better way - the Data Commander™ was born.

Brandon invented the Data Commander™ with the end-user in mind.  Manufacturing engineers don't need to be data scientists or PLC programmers.  A combination of proprietary hardware and software along with the point-and-click nature of the Data Commander™ removes the complexities allowing secure implementation in minutes vs. days or even months.
