From an interview with Jensen Ventilation AB's owner Lars-Ingvar Nordstrom:

"Not many companies today that have had only three owners in just over 130 years, I decided back in the '60s, when I bought the company, that I shall not forget to have fun. And I must say that I have had. I have been fortunate to develop solutions that have since become our signature. We have unique solutions for products and services in an industry that is not very unique in itself."
