The Three Largest Manufacturers of Laboratory Furniture in Denmark
Looking to install a high-tech laboratory in Copenhagen, Denmark? It can be difficult to know which manufacturer of laboratory furniture to choose. Especially when Denmark boasts some of the most innovative manufacturers of laboratory furniture in the world.
I hear you say ‘seriously, we have the best in the world?’ Maybe we should say it like Carlsberg – ‘Probably’.
Denmark’s three largest manufacturers of laboratory furniture have historically originated from the same roots. The three companies that are operating so successfully today began existence around 60 years ago. Over the years, the desire to create the most practical, flexible, and ergonomic laboratory furniture designs has resulted in something that is… well… world class.
And that is why Copenspace can only highly recommend the products from these three companies and is proud to supply their products in our turn-key installations. Here is an introduction to them:
The current Labflex company was established in 1992, but the roots of the company go back long before that, by the name of Byrum Labflex. Now, the company has undergone ownership changes, and continues its pathway of developing future-proof laboratory designs.
Labflex’s 15.000m2 production facilities are located in Skive, where state-of-the-art modern machinery with optimised work and material flow make production as efficient as possible. All of Labflex’s products are manufactured in high quality with an unwavering commitment to functionality, design, ergonomics, environment, and long service life.
The Labflex team includes architects, engineers, building designers and laboratory technicians, through which careful insight is achieved into norms, regulations, and trends.
