Danfoss is one of the largest industrial companies in Denmark. The global group is a leader within research, development and production, sales and service of mechanical and electronic components for several industries.
Danfoss founder Mads Clausen was born in 1905 in Havnbjerg, Denmark, at the farm which now houses the Danfoss Museum.
In 1933, after graduating in engineering, Mads Clausen returned to his birthplace. The crisis of the 1930’s had left customs barriers and import bans and he saw the opportunity for producing and selling automatic valves for refrigeration plants – production which until then took place in the United States. So he set up a company in his parents’ attic.

Such thinkingis deeply rooted in Danish history and culture and is reflected in the daily operations ofglobal companies.
