JENSEN-GROUP is an international company that manufactures machines for the heavy-duty laundry industry, based in Belgium, but originating in Denmark, on the island Bornholm.

History[edit]

Finishing lines for flatwork and garments

The JENSEN-GROUP traces its origins back to a servicing and manufacturing company that was founded in 1937 in Østermarie on Bornholm, a Danish Island in the Baltic Sea. In 1960, Jørn Munch Jensen[1] (1932-2012) developed the first folding machine for heavy-duty laundries and began marketing the product worldwide.

In 1973 the first feeder was added to the product range. JENSEN then developed its own ironer in the 80’s and started supplying complete flatwork finishing systems and later added garment technology through the acquisition of Metricon Conveyor Systems in the 90’s.

In 1998, Jesper Munch Jensen (b. 1966, CEO) instigated an expansion program that led to the acquisition of Senking GmbH, Futurail and L-Tron and made JENSEN the first total laundry automation supplier.

Present day[edit]

Today, the JENSEN-GROUP is organized into four worldwide business regions and two technology centers - washroom and finishing technology - with a total of six production sites.
