Elcoman is one of the world's largest manufacturers of shredders: 150,000 machines per year, which are entirely designed and manufactured in Italy.
Paper shredders, guillotines and trimmers are distributed in over 90 countries under the KOBRA brand. The KOBRA brand is globally recognized for efficient and high quality products, certified and compliant with European and international standards.
1985 KOBRA began manufacturing paper shredders in Italy. First company to introduce "electronic eyes" technology for automatic start/stop.
Robust high precision gearbox is developed and patented by Elcoman. This unique system is the basis of Kobra products to this day. Reliability and long-lasting performance are the characteristics of this control system: the new Kobra series has been exported to 70 countries worldwide. In 1997, the production system was certified to the ISO 9000 standard.
The US National Security Agency (NSA) and the US government set the strictest standards for the destruction of classified documents. A new Kobra HS-6 line was developed, approved by the NSA and included on their list of approved shredders.

Arc's latest innovation is Hybrid Technology- Cobra's hybrid system uses the energy stored during the shredding cycle to improve efficiency and disconnect the machine from the electrical system. This saves up to 15% of otherwise used electrical energy.
What you should consider when choosing a shredder:
- The number of sheets you need to shred daily
- The privacy of your data
- The types of media to be shredded (paper, CDs, credit cards)
- How many people will use the shredder daily
- What is your budget
Choose a shredder according to how the sheets will be shredded
