IRON Pump A/S was founded in 1906 by Mr. C.G. Arnesen. The descendants of the founder have throughout the 100  years been involved in the management of Iron. Today, two great-granddaughters of C. G. Arnesen are represented on the board of IRON Pump Holding A/S. The management of the company is handled by Mr. Anders Frimodt-Møller, naval engineer.

In 1912 IRON Pump developed and patented the wing pump which was installed on board the world’s first ocean going diesel motor vessel, M/S Selandia. Today, marine pumps are supplied world-wide, and close to 90 percent of the output is exported to more than 70 countries, through an extensive network of agents and distributors.

The main markets are the marine and offshore industries. Other customers are power plants, district heating companies, and water works. Whenever sea or fresh water is pumped, IRON Pump is your partner.

The factory is situated in Soeborg, near Copenhagen. IRON Pump has approx. 100 employees and an annual turnover exceeding  EUR 18 mio.

Breakthrough in the marine pump sector came in 1912 with a new type of cooling water pump to Denmark’s largest shipyard, B&W. During the following years the qualities of IRON Pump became known to most north European shipyards and step by step IRON Pump gained respect as one of the leading suppliers of high end quality pumps. The days of workshops and inventors were over and a modern international manufacturer was born.

Today we specialize in pumps for the marine and energy sectors, are fully capable of competing globally, still sticking to label 'Made in Denmark'.
