The BROEN-LAB story
Poul Broen was one of Denmark’s iconic inventors and entrepreneurs. As a skilled engineer he had a keen interest in water control and saving, and he devised several ingenious valves, taps and sanitary fittings from an early age.
He founded his company together with his son in 1948, and it went on to become an industrial leader with strong brands and a worldwide reach. With his aptitude for solving problems regarding water control, Poul Broen saw the need for better flow systems in laboratories and for emergency shower systems in workplaces, where people risk exposure to hot, acidic or otherwise harmful substances.
New owners in 2022
Thus, laboratory fittings and emergency shower systems became new business areas for Broen’s company back in the 1960’s. In 1980 the activities were separated into its own business unit named BROEN-LAB. The unit flourished over the following decades, until it was decided to sell it to Capidea (private equity fund) in 2015. January 2022 BROEN-LAB was acquired by LI Enterprises Group and became part of the Group together with the US-based companies WaterSaver Faucet Co. and Guardian Equipment Inc, both of which are strong, global players within laboratory fittings and emergency shower solutions for professional laboratories, universities, the educational sector, and various industries. BROEN-LAB is operating as an independent company within the Group under its own management.
Poul Broen’s spirit lives on in the new and independent BROEN-LAB. His restless search for better solutions and his willingness to challenge old assumptions are still the basic pillars in our business today.
