The History of JKF Industri A/S
JKF was founded by Louis Nielsen in Als in 1957, and remains the site of the main factory and parent company of the JKF Group.
The company had the original tongue-twisting name of 'Jysk Knæ- & Pladerørsfabrik' – which was changed to the slightly easier JKF Industri A/S in 1982, when export sale volumes had become so large that a name which could be pronounced by foreigners was needed!
In 1985, a transfer of ownership was started, when a group of JKF employees and the long-standing partner Cimbria, based in Thisted, Denmark became shareholders, and the process was completed in 2004 when Louis Nielsen resigned as Chairman of the board. JKF is now owned by Maj Invest Equity.
International Industrial Group
From humble beginnings as a forging shop, JKF has grown into a modern and international industrial business. The factory site in Als, Denmark covers over 25,000 m² in addition to the JKF manufacturing plants at its subsidiaries in Poland and Malaysia, and the sales office in Singapore.
When it comes to installation, JKF has a rich source of experience to draw on in its Danish subsidiary which specialises in installing the process ventilation systems produced by JKF.
JKF’s consistent growth has expanded the workforce to a total of approx. 200-250, of which 160 are based in Denmark and the balance spread between the plants in Poland and Malaysia, plus the sales office in Singapore.
The group turnover has also grown over the years to approx. 20-25 million Euro, 77% of which was derived from exports.
A committed business
77% of JKF’s production is exported around the world; one of the reasons why the company has established factories in Poland and Malaysia, with a sales office in Singapore responsible for sales and planning on the Asian market. The network of dealers covers most of the globe, with representatives throughout Europe, USA, Canada and Australia.
JKF’s policy of local support in Denmark is also applied elsewhere in the world. Wherever an installation is required, the company provides the same level of support – taking local responsibility.
At the Forefront
New demands are constantly made of process ventilation systems, particularly for safety, hygiene, the environment. noise, energy consumption etc. For example, JKF has developed a system which sets new standards for personal safety related to explosions in filters - a method which has been tested, documented and approved by TÜV.
At JKF, our goal is to constantly be on the leading edge of development, comply with the requirements of the authorities and customers. Doing so will ensure JKF systems which not only meet all standards, but which will also set new ones.
Quality at all levels
Ever since it was founded, JKF has always sought new solutions, setting standards rather than following others, and building market expectations into research and development long before they become requirements. JKF holds several ISO certificates as proof of its quality assurance procedures; ISO 9001 documents total quality, ISO 14001 the environment and ISO 18001 health and safety.
