Hans Christian and Bibi Hovmand founded H.C. Hovmand ApS Polyurethan in the village of Haverup near the town of Sorø in Denmark to develop custom-made polyurethane machines. The first constructions were produced in an old chicken coop on his property.

In the following years, Hovmand became the first dealer in aluminum sacking trucks in Denmark and took over sales of German conveyor belts and screening plants. Because of the company’s growth, Hans C. Hovmand initially bought a tent and set it up on his property to serve as a warehouse, then moved the premises to a roadside car dealership in Sorø;


To be closer to his customers, Hans C. Hovmand opened a store in central Copenhagen.


Moved the company headquarters to a 1500 m² building, also in Sorø.


The first electric lifting trolley was launched, with the same concepts used until today


Søren Hovmand took over the management of Hovmand A/S and sold the polyurethane company to devote himself exclusively to the production and sale of electric lifting trolleys.


Opened a subsidiary in Munich, Germany, with the intention of expanding the business.


Moved to a new factory in Køge, now with enough space for new developments. The Virtual Engineering App developed by the company, the VE App, received a Digital Award from the Danish Ministry of Economic Affairs.
