Born in Frederiksberg in Denmark, Kjeld Ammentorp moved to the United Kingdom in 1919. A civil engineer by training, Ammentorp took advantage of the invention of self-agitating cement trucks in the 1920s. He built his first plant in 1930 at Bedfont in London, bought cement mixers from Denmark and expanded his business into one of the largest in the United Kingdom.
In May 1920 he married Tordis Giersing at St. James's Church in London.
