The centre for Energy Efficiency and Ventilation at the Danish Technological Institute has embarked on a programme to optimise the energy consumption from a number of process lines for Junckers Industrier A/S – Europe’s largest producer of parquet and wooden floors, and who also produce the well-known Junckers floor lacquers and oils. In 2007 the Danish Technological Institute achieved energy savings of 58% on two production lines – the equivalent of EUR 47,000 a year.
The group employs around 450 people and has a turnover of about EUR 94 million. Junckers Industrier A/S is represented all over the world through a network of sales companies and dealers.
- We really appreciate the advice the Danish Technological Institute gave us about how we could reduce our energy consumption in production. The knowledge is indispensable for us, especially as the advice also included an implementation part together with an engineer from the Institute, says department manager in production service Peter Pinholt from Junckers Industrier A/S.
He adds that there is an extra plus in that the improvements in energy efficiency can be carried out without Junckers Industrier A/S’ own operations department having to increase their manpower resources.
Junckers Industrier A/S has achieved significant savings in their energy consumption thanks to the Danish Technological Institute.
