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 2015
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 new owners in 2015. BROEN-LAB was acquired by an experienced team, consisting of the company’s management, an industrial investor plus a private equity fund.
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.
