Gram & Juhl has reached a milestone this month, celebrating 20 years in the wind energy industry. The company has grown from a small manufacturing company to an international recognized supplier of CMS solutions.
Gram & Juhl has grown from the dreams of founders and CEO/CFO, Axel Juhl & Klaus Gram-Hansen to a company with locations in three major countries within the wind industry. Gram & Juhl offers a unique solution that maximizes your wind turbines’ uptime by early failure detection of costly components such as gearboxes, main bearings or generators. The company was founded in 1997 and by 1999 the first TCM® (Turbine Condition Monitoring) system was up and running in 22 wind turbines on the island of Lolland in Denmark. In the years after the installation on Lolland, orders for TCM® came rushing in one after the other, and today the TCM® system is installed in over 70% of all offshore turbines.
To mark the date even more, the company has in this month reach 20.000 sold TCM® systems.
Company Founder and CEO, Axel Juhl remarked: “We have achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of innovation and our culture of customer service that exists throughout the entire organization. We have dedicated ourselves to 20 years of product innovation and manufacturing efficiencies to provide our customer with the highest quality within CMS. Throughout 2017, we will be taking a look at where we started, what we have achieved, and what our plans are for the future.”
Gram & Juhl is a company still in growth. The past two years has been very exciting for Gram & Juhl, who opened their American department in Denver, Colorado in 2015, and in January this year the Gram & Juhl monitoring department was consecrated in Oldenburg, Germany. During the past two years the company has employed over 10 new people, and is still seeking to employ an innovative engineer and a technical supporter for their location in Denmark.
Earlier this month the company invited all employees and their families to a fun-filled day with activities and barbeque in Denmark to celebrate our milestone.”
“It gives me great pride in joining Gram & Juhl’s employees and families in celebrating the company’s 20th anniversary. We have come a long way since the business started in 1997 and very excited about our future as the company continues to thrive and develop,” said Axel Juhl when talking about the celebration.
