We help customers benefit from a worldwide network of specialist suppliers and partners.

Haarslev’s continued strategy of challenging the status quo has brought forward a renewed commitment towards innovation and developments. All Haarslev innovation and development work focuses on better results for customers. Haarslev Innovation Group is now headed up by Christian Luxhøj. Our aim is to bring innovation to the industry allowing our customers to run more efficient, profitable and sustainable, while focusing on decreased energy consumptions at the same time as increasing throughputs and yields.
