Gram & Juhl are opening a department in Germany

08.12.2016

The danish monitoring solution expert for wind turbines Gram & Juhl is going to open an office in Germany in January. With the establishment of the new department, Gram & Juhl wishes to ensure the continued growth and development and to strengthen the business in Europe.

Gram & Juhl A/S started a department in North America last year, now it is time to start up one in Germany. The Gram & Juhl GmbH will open its doors on 9th January in Oldenburg’s Technology Park. The opening of the new department happens after 2 ½ successful years of growth in monitoring.

The company’s CEO Axel Juhl thinks of Germany as a logical choice. He explains, “Germany is a large market in Europe, so there is a huge market potential for our monitoring of wind turbines.” He also thinks that Oldenburg is located just right to increase the availability for customers in Central Europe.

It is the company’s condition monitoring expert Zabihullah Alefi, who is going to lead the German division. Zabihullah, who comes from Germany, has 10 years of experience in the field of condition monitoring specializing in wind turbine generation. Now he is going to come back to repeat the success for Gram & Juhn in Germany.
