Growing from a small company
to a strong multinational firm
The company was founded in 2001 by Mr. Lars Ole Jensen.
The opportunity to start up the company came through thanks to Mr. Jensen's prior connections and global sales experience in the cooling industry where he worked for 15 years. He started working from his home until he moved into a small office in Esbjerg City.
In 2004, the first 2 employees where hired to help him with his fast growing business. At that point, the company was producing high performance cooling products for laboratories and the medical segment worldwide.
In 2005, the company moved again to bigger facilities in Esbjerg. That step gave the opportunity to have more stock and also to have the offices on the same site. At that time, the firm counted only 6 employees.
Two years later, due to the need of larger offices, stock facilities and a bigger workshop, the company moved again to larger premises in the industrial area of Esbjerg. The same year, another huge step was made when the company became ISO9001 certified.
In early 2008, the office building was expanded with larger office space and meeting rooms.
In 2010, the name of the company changed from Dairei Europe A/S to Arctiko A/S.
Today the company has production facilities in Denmark/Europe, with a subsidiary in the USA (Arctiko International).
