However, in the early years, the company mainly carried out motor rewinding and handtools repair for the timber industry. Three years were to pass before Bent Justsen got an indication of the future direction of the company. At the time, there was no such thing as an energy crisis, but the timber industry struggled with waste disposal problems. In 1962, a customer asked Justsen whether he could build an automatic wood chip combustion plant.
Just the challenge for an inventive mind like Bent Justsen, who immediately set about the major task of product development. Following many trials and tribulations, Justsen finally succeeded in getting the first plant to work satisfactorily. The future course was set, a fact borne out by the company’s official stationery which now proclaimed “Specialist manufacturers of combustion plants for the timber industry”. In fact, things went so well that in 1965 the company moved into the then brand new industrial estate on Grimhøjvej in Brabrand.
From here, in the course of the 1960s, the company supplied numerous combustion plants to companies throughout Denmark.Among the first customers was Feldballes Møbelfabrik in Hasselager, which bought a complete combustion plant at a cost of DKK 20,000.
