In 1965, Peter Christensen started the machine factory PEHAMA together with his brother Hans Aage Christensen, and the name was composed using the two brothers’ first names PEter, HAns and MAskinfabrik.
Already then, the goal was finding the right solution to optimize our customers' production.
The company experienced rapid growth, and over the years we have built up strong expertise in the manufacturing of special machines and production equipment for all branches of Danish industry.
In 1974, Hans Aage Christensen moved to Lambjergskov where he started a smaller sole proprietor business. This is why he transferred the company to his brother Peter Christensen
In 1996, Jan Christensen and Carsten Bleiken joined the company’s management as the introduction of a generation shift.
In 2000 the CEO Peter Christensen chose to retire.
Torben Frederiksen, formerly design manager, took over the then directorship and also became co-owner of the company.
In 2006 Pehama acquired EK maskinfabrik. In the two years that followed, the company operated under two land registers, both from Tandslet, where the former EK maskinfabrik was situated as well as in Havnbjerg where Pehama is located.
In 2009, both companies moved in under one roof, which is why Pehama now operates exclusively from Kvanløkke 1 in Havnbjerg.
By 2015, Pehama could celebrate its 50th anniversary and thereby confirm its position as one of the country's oldest automation companies.
