The history of Frese stretches back over 60 years to 1944 when Børge Frese started a small basement foundry at Slagelse in Denmark, the town which is still home today to the company’s world wide headquarters. Frese is still a family owned and managed company with Børge`s son Johnni Frese and his grandchildren Kim, Claus and Tina Frese taking the lead roles in developing Frese’s portfolio of products and supplying new and emerging worldwide markets. Frese currently employs 100 members of staff directly and is currently enjoying growth in the region of 15% per year.

This early metal foundry started life producing pots and pans for post war Denmark but it wasn’t long before the foundry developed and specialized in castings of copper and steel alloys for the shipbuilding and offshore industries. In the early 1960’s the Frese family embarked on a programme of significant investment in state of the art technology that enabled Frese to develop and manufacture the worlds leading technologically advanced automatic balancing valves that we see today. These products have already been identified as the products of choice for the HVAC industry, the world over, in the years ahead.

Since 1944, Frese has built up a world-wide valve distribution network covering all four corners of the globe serviced by specialist valve distributors based in nearly 30 countries. This network extends from Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Far East and right through to New Zealand

This international operation is split into two distinct business sectors which combine to form the Frese Group. These distinct sectors are Frese Metal which is the hi-tech foundry and support services and Frese A/S which is the sales, valve production, assembly and test site. The combination of these individual business operations produces a group structure dedicated to the development of world beating solutions and customer support.

Being a family run business has enabled Frese to maintain the same values identified over 60 years ago which are honesty, loyalty and good workmanship.
