IK-TRADING was founded in 1994 by Jørgen Kristensen - a trained agricultural and constructional metalworker. Before starting IK-TRADING, he was employed by the
biggest contracting group in Denmark, Per Aarsleff, on such projects as sewer renovation.
Recognising the need for compact mobile units for no-dig renovation projects, he designed and built his first prototype in 2000. His son Thomas - also a trained metalworker - joined the company in 2004 and there are five other qualified full-time employees plus Jørgen’s wife Inge on the books. The core team is supplemented by quality-conscious specialist subcontractors when required.
