“He should actually be 70 years old for all that he’s done so far” – stated the former managing director of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Klaus Moser
In fact, however, he was not born until 1971 in Steinheim, but at the age of 18, he already founded EOS Sicherheitsdienst GmbH & Co. KG. To this day, he has been managing partner with, in the meantime, more than 300 employees. He retired from the operational management of EOS at the beginning of 2017, and has been responsible for the strategic orientation of the company since then. Bernd Elsenhans was also active as a local politician of the Steinheim municipal council for a period of 16 years, and has been a longstanding member of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce plenary assembly, as well as a board member of several important organizations
EMS Werteinlagerung e. K. arose from an idea of the original founders, idea givers, and partners Bernd Elsenhans, Dr. rer. nat. Dipl.-Ing. (FH) MPhil Jürgen Müller, and Prof. Dr. Klaus Sakowski. The initial foundation of EMS Werteinlagerung GbR was completed in November 2009. Meanwhile, Dr. rer. nat. Dipl.-Ing. (FH) MPhil Jürgen Müller exclusively takes care of his company www.goldsilber.org. Prof. Dr. Klaus Sakowski holds a full professorship at the DHBW in Baden-Württemberg. Bernd Elsenhans has been the sole shareholder since 2015.
With the planning of a new business building for EOS Sicherheitsdienst GmbH & Co. KG in 2007 and 2008 by Bernd Elsenhans, managing director and shareholder, in Heidenheim an der Brenz, the business activity of EMS Werteinlagerung GbR developed, after having moved in in 2009, with offering several hundred lockers.
Since then, one of the safest bunker systems with several hundred lockers has been available to various customers from the industry, precious metal trading, and private individuals.
An essential component of this new company building is unparalleled and Europe-wide unique vault in the underground cellar area. From then on, the safes have ensured the storage of valuables of all kinds in a highly protected area.
We make it possible for you to store items of value, such as cash, gold, silver, and other precious metals, important documents, or paintings and antiques, in your private locker. It is also possible to rent complete safes with a capacity of several hundred liters.

Since the outbreak of the financial crisis in 2008/09, at the latest, confidence in banks and their services has been declining. The current economic crisis is additionally aggravating mistrust in the world of banking. If a financial institution files for bankruptcy, it is highly likely that the assets stored there in lockers will initially be blocked until the situation is sorted out, which can take a long time. Banks are also legally obliged to report the customer’s master data to the tax authorities when establishing lockers. In addition, there is a statutory obligation to report assets to the tax office responsible for the administration of inheritance tax in the event of the death of a locker customer. EMS Werteinlagerung e. K. does not pass on any information about customers or stored valuables to authorities and/or third parties.
Our high-security building is located in 89520 Heidenheim an der Brenz, Germany. With direct motorway access to the A7 motorway, centrally located in the middle of the cities of Stuttgart, Ulm, Munich, and Würzburg. You will find the way to us in our map.
In order to book a safe deposit box and to provide access to the vault, we need your personal data as required by the contract. We collect these from you within the framework of the conclusion of the contract. We treat this data with the utmost discretion according to the GDPR. EMS will not disclose your data to authorities and/or other third parties unless we are required to do so (e.g. as part of a judicial search warrant). In addition, the right of individual access to the vault offers a maximum of discretion. Finally, a security lock for cars ensures that you can enter and leave the building unseen. At no time will you come across any other renters. Thus, we guarantee your anonymity to a maximum.
In the (unlikely) event of bankruptcy, EMS cannot access your valuables, as all keys are in the possession of the locker renter. EMS shall also not be entitled to the stored items. Rather, the customer has a right of segregation which, in case of doubt, can be enforced more easily and more quickly than with banks. In the event of bankruptcy and subsequent insolvency proceedings, you will be immediately informed and asked to collect your valuables, and to return your keys. Further measures to completely rule out such cases have been implemented since the beginning. We would be happy to provide you with comprehensive personal advice on this subject.
Our regular business hours are from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm local time. You can access your locker free of charge at any time during this period. We ask you to register your visit at least one hour in advance by telephone, so we can guarantee you the individual right of access and open the
corresponding time-locked secured access locks. Access is also possible around the clock on all days of the year. Please register your visit in time. In case of a visit outside our business hours, a fee of 65 € will be charged.
Each renter receives two keys to his or her locker. If you lose a key, we must replace the corresponding lock for your own safety. In case you lose both keys, we have to break open the locker in question. Both will only be carried out in the presence of the renter at his expense. EMS Werteinlagerung e. K. neither has a third key nor is there a master key. Additionally, we contribute a maximum of discretion.
There is basic insurance for all objects. This can be individually adjusted and increased at the renter’s request. EMS also supports the renter in the search for a suitable external insurance, and has contact providers and addresses for this purpose. However, due to the high technical security standards for safes and buildings, insurance is hardly recommended or even virtually obsolete. Please also bear in mind that in case of doubt, you must inform an insurance company of the contents and value of your items in the safe deposit box.
The prerequisite for the storage of valuables in our safes is an existing rental contract. We will be happy to send it to you if you are interested. However, EMS prefers to know its renters in person. After signing the contract, you can access the locker you have rented at any time. Please announce the desired access date in time. At the time agreed, you register at the entrance gate of our vault location with the access formalities agreed upon. Then, you drive to the company premises. If you wish, we can also provide you with our security lock entry for cars. You will then be picked up by one of our staff, and accompanied through the various security systems to the vault. There, you can access your safe deposit box unseen, and carry out storage or retrieval operations, or access the contents of your safe deposit box cassette unattended in the vault’s anteroom.
Behind EMS Werteinlagerung e. K. is a personally liable shareholder: Bernd Elsenhans (security expert, specialist author, security entrepreneur). He is supported and advised by the former co-founder: Prof. Dr. Klaus Sakowski (lawyer). Just like Dr.rer.nat., Dipl.-Ing.(FH), MPhil Jürgen Müller, a former co-partner with expertise in the field of precious metals. These three gentlemen give the company its name and guarantee absolute discretion and the security of your valuables with their experience.
With our lockers in 7 different sizes, we offer you the possibility to store items up to a maximum size of 40 × 35 × 45 cm (H × W × D). However, larger items can also be stored in the vault outside the lockers, in individual safes. In this case, please contact us directly.
We typically store precious metals, confidential documents, securities, jewelry (valuables), or data carriers. However, it is also possible to store works of art such as paintings etc., as our vault is air-conditioned. In addition, separate storage facilities are available in accordance with the standard of the current firearms laws. The deposit of software source code is also possible in order to grant customers access to the source code in the event of the software manufacturer’s bankruptcy (so-called software escrow). Dangerous goods, especially flammable goods, cannot be stored. The storage of items is also not permitted if and to the extent that the law prohibits the possession, use, or safekeeping of such items (e.g. weapons laws, narcotics laws, the German Atomic Energy Act, the German War Weapons control Act, etc.).
EMS Werteinlagerung takes care of the transfer to your new safe deposit box at EMS Werteinlagerung. Experienced, well-equipped security forces transport your valuables in civilian, highly secured protection vehicles. A discrete approach is a matter of course. The transport / transport of valuables is free of charge for you up to a certain distance from the previous storage location to EMS Werteinlagerung, depending on the current routing of the regular transports. Please ask us.
