ELLEHAMMER was founded in 1904 by the Danish inventor J.C.H. Ellehammer, who is regarded as the inventor of motorised flight in Europe. With the large number of his important patents, Ellehammer was a visionary inventor who helped to lay the foundations of modern industrial development.
His son, Hans Ellehammer, continued the development of the company with a high degree of specialisation in emergency fire pumps and ejectors, and with focus on business development. This was the background in which he set up the Ellehammer Foundation, which has owned the company, ELLEHAMMER, since Hans Ellehammer died in 2004. See the Ellehammer Foundation’s Danish website at: www.ellehammerfonden.dk.
The current managing director, Bruno Wigandt, took over from Hans Ellehammer and continues the proud tradition of high quality and innovation in a modern business that is now one of the world’s leading producers of ejectors and emergency fire pumps for maritime applications.
Over 70,000 Ellehammer ejectors are used every day around the world, and the emergency fire pumps have a leading position on the market. You see, when it comes to safety and reliability, ELLEHAMMER was not born yesterday. ELLEHAMMER has a long tradition for well-thought-out solutions that never fail.
