History of the company

The history of KE Fibertec AS goes all the way back to 1963  when manufacturer Keld Ellentoft (KE) began making filterbags for  industry. In 1996 KE Fibertec was established in a management buyout  by two leading employees, Henning S. Jensen and Carsten Jespersen. In  March 2007, Managing Director Henning S. Jensen sells his shares  to Jysk-Fynsk Kapital AS, and Sales Director Carsten Jespersen is  appointed new managing director.

Behind Jysk-Fynsk Kapital are five  well-known Danish family foundations, AHF Holding (Faber Gardiner),  Genua A/S (the Primo group), Hoffmann Capital A/S (Arovit Petfood),  L.  E. Kristiansen Erhvervsinvest ApS (Tvilum Scanbirk), and Vald. Birn  Holding A/S (the Valdemar Birn group).

From 1996 to 2009 KE Fibertec has undergone a huge development both as  to turnover and staff. From approx. 40 employees in 1996, today's  number of employees is around 110, and subsidiaries have been established in the UK, Germany, and the USA as well as the production company KE Fibertec Væveri.

With the acquisition of Euro Air A/S and  Euro Air CZ (production company of Euro Air in the Czech Republic) in  2007, the KE group has strengthened its position as the world's leading  manufacturer of textile ducting.

KE Fibertec was first marketed by Induscool in the UK, then up until 2004 by JSP Airfridge. Since 2004, KE Fibertec UK have been selling the products under their own name.
