The Bjerrum Nielsen story began in 1949, when Niels Bjerrum Nielsen saw opportunities in the rapidly growing market for radios, which led to him setting up his own carpentry workshop and producing radio cabinets for Bang & Olufsen, among others.
Quality, creativity and flexibility were key values then and have been ever since, with those three values combined with a good deal of innovation providing a solid foundation for our continued growth and success. This growth has manifested itself both in new services and an ever-increasing level of automation, with the result that Bjerrum Nielsen is now in a position to offer a one-stop shop, from CNC and industrial painting to decoration and pre-assembly of customers’ products and semi-finished products.
At the same time, our many years of experience enable us to advise and contribute to products and solutions that create value for customers from many different industries.
Today, the company is owned by a professional group of investors including Niels Bjerrum Nielsen’s two sons, John and Claus, who are still shareholders. Claus Bjerrum Nielsen also plays an active role in the day-to-day management in his role as sales director.
