In 1982 BMJ Maskinfabrik was founded by Jens Ole Bach, Preben Munck and Henning Jensen. The first 10 years of its existence the business was run by the owners in their spare time. In the beginning they produced small items used for example in gravel pit machinery. Later on they began to manufacture shafts and other rotating items on purchased turret and automatic lathes. After some years using lathes it was decided to purchase the company’s first CNC machine, which made it possible to produce items of more complex shapes and to finer tolerances than previously.

In 1992 a machine was built for the manufacture of the pipe section of a suspended hall tree. Items from this production entailed a severe lack of space and the factory had to move from its previous location at a disused farm at Højslev to larger premises at Stoholm, which is where the business is based to this day. What used to be a part time occupation now became a full time job, and the efforts were focussed on building up a serious components supply company, particularly within the field of machining. More CNC machines were purchased to replace the old automatic machines, which had become outdated.

In 1996 the founders of BMJ, meanwhile, decided to sell the business to Poul Pinholt, who had recently graduated as a mechanical engineer. He continued, and continues, to run the business, with the competent assistance of Jens Ole Bach, who chose to carry on as an employee. The focus remains on things such as quality, flexibility and reliability of delivery. The company carries out countless and varied tasks, ranging from plastics processing to the most ductile tool steel or from a simple turned item to more complex products which involve both turning, milling and welding. Over the years BMJ has been involved in many development projects and has made prototypes for many different purposes.

In 2000 BMJ Maskinfabrik purchased a specialist production of marine filters from Bergla Maskinfabrik at Brønderslev. Both the size and the type of production fitted well with the company’s desire for wide diversification. By now BMJ also has a CNC controlled flame/plasma cutting plant, plate bending machines, a large vertical lathe and an expanded welding department. After a somewhat turbulent beginning this too has now become an efficient unit which concentrates on servicing North European shipyards and ship owners.

Today BMJ Maskinfabrik has seven employees, all of whom are highly skilled within their field.
