J.C.H. Ellehammer (1871-1946) is Denmark’s most famous inventor. He obtained more than 400 patents and invented a series of mechanical items; boats for the Tivoli Gardens, a motor cycle, The Elleham, and he is regarded as one of the founders of powered flight in Europe when he ‘took off’ in 1906!
“Life is essentially worthless. What matters is accomplishment.
The more you accomplish, the more life matters”
– J.C.H Ellehammer once said and his excitement to invent, to excel – and to accomplish, was what drove him.
His firefighting equipment formed the basis of our company as we know it. His enthusiasm to accomplish, to create, to make a difference and his joy of mechanics is still what drives us today at Ellehammer A/S.
As of 1st November 2017, Ellehammer is part of Danish pump manufacturer IRON Pump. IRON Pump specialises in the manufacturing of marine pumps, pumps for the offshore industry and for the energy sector.
