Danfoss District Energy History

  • Our Journey so far

    1991

    In 1991 District Heating was launched as a separate product line at Danfoss. At that time the turnover was a modest 10,4 million EUR, the business and the products were mainly for the Scandinavian countries.

    The aim of the new business was to build up a new product line in order to become a global supplier of district energy components and to expand the product range. This aim was achieved through a series of acquisitions and divestments.

    1995

    The first acquisition was in 1995, when Danfoss acquired Trata, and in the next few years consolidated production and development of district energy products in Slovenia.

    2000

    In September 2000 IWK Regler GmbH in Stutensee, Germany was acquired.

    2001

    In 2001 the Danish ball valves factory JiP in Glamsbjerg was acquired.

    2003

    We saw opportunity to further develop technology to optimize functionality and improve services within district heating substations. So we have strengthened our position even more by acquiring leading and high performing manufacturers of substations and plate heat exchangers.

    In 2003 it was LPM with factories in Finland and Poland. And also Redan from Denmark.

    2004

    In 2004, Danish substations factory Gemina Termix as well as the sales company AGH warmte − units b. v. from the Netherlands joined us.

    2005

    Substation producer FWT Wärmtechnik AG from Germany joined us in 2005.

    While strengthening development and production in Anshan, we also established substation production in Wuqing, China the same year.

    2006

    In 2006, substations factories Schmidt-Bretten Technology from Romania and Nopro Wärmesysteme GesmbH from Austria joined our family.

    2007

    In 2007 German substation producer DMS Wasser-Wärmesysteme GmbH was aquired.

    2008

    In 2008, Swiss substation producer Proenergie Wärmetechnik was aquired.

    2010

    As of January 2010 we have changed our name from Danfoss District Heating to Danfoss District Energy to further emphasize our focus on district heating and cooling applications and solutions. 

    Furthermore, we are now an independent division within the Danfoss Group.

    2013

    In 2013, we opened a new factory in Kamnik, Slovenia in order to strengthen our heat exchanger production.
