Once upon a time a company was founded…
Fyns Kran Udstyr A/S was founded in 1969. At that time the company was owned by Villy Bøllingtoft. Today the company is back in the Bøllingtoft family as Jackie Bøllingtoft (son of Villy Bøllingtoft) bought the Company in September 2004. Since then Fyns Kran Udstyr A/S has experienced significant changes and have had a positive development. Among other things Fyns Kran Udstyr has acquired ABB’s previous department of crane service.
Equally the company has expanded in relation to employees and count today approx. 80 employees in Denmark.
