The Egholm milestones

Egholm Maskiner ApS was founded in the spring of 1992 by the brothers Kaj and Jens Christian Egholm. In the first financial year of the company, it had 4 employees. Since its inception in 1992, Egholm has launched mechanical solutions within the mink industry and agriculture. During its first years, Egholm sold canal stirrers for pig sties and cattle houses. These helped to secure the financial ballast to develop and produce the articulated universal tractor Egholm 2100. In 1999/2000, Egholm divested the production rights to the manure stirrers and mink equipment in order to focus entirely on the further development, production and sales of the Egholm 2100.
