History

The history of the patented FLADDER® denibbing, finishing and deburring system.

 
1974
The Development Center Hansen & Hundebøl is established.
 
The idea was to develop solution to manufacturers with a need for automation or rationalize their production process.
 
Typically it was cases where no solutions were found in the market.
 
Thus, Hansen & Hundebøl has developed a variety of industrial machine solutions for various industries.
 
From the end of the 70s to 1995 the production was aimed at the wood working industry, but due to an increasing demand the products are also being used by the metal industry and are sold to a wide range of industries.
 
To support our brand internationally and create a relation between our company name and the brand FLADDER®, the company name was changed from Hansen & Hundebøl to Fladder Danmark A/S.
