Year Founded:

Ellegaard A/S was established in December 1989 by Ella and Øjvind Ellegaard. Øjvind Ellegaard’s aim was to develop a fully automatic substratepot-machine to secure a sustainable production. He succeeded with a construction that works by the means of vacuum. This unique vacuum system is patented in 35 countries worldwide.

The production method worked so efficiently that the first 2 employees were engaged in 1992. Later that year, the Ellegaard machine aroused such an interest that it was decided to develop a semi-automatic machine as well.

This year Ellegaard also began a still existing partnership with one of the Worlds leading paper manufactures. This partnership was established to develop the best – and most suitable paper for the The Ellepot Propagation System.

The number of employees increased simultaneously with the number of sold machines and soon larger premises were required. Since 1998 Ellegaard A/S has been located in 7.800 M2 at Storstrømsvej 55 where both production and sales are placed.

Spring 2005 the Ellegaard family decided, as a generational change, to sell a part of the company to Erhvervsinvest. Today Ellegaard A/S is owned by Capidea.

The wide range of products at Ellegaard, including machines, paper and trays, are now Ellegaard’s strength. We are doing our outmost to keep the product development at a high level to secure the satisfaction among our clients.
