History

Hansens Engineering is a family business founded in 1956 by Viggo and Birthe Hagedorn-Hansen. Their son Glenn took over the reins in 1984. His son Erik joined him in 1996 and together they succesfully manage this 3rd generation business.

Initially the business was involved with General Engineering, operating both a jobbing shop and a production shop. 

The company took ownership of its first NC machine in 1969.

In 2001 a strategic decision was made to concentrate solely on production manufacturing.

The company moved to its new modern premises in 2002.
