We believe in
Automation of great ideas
PJM A/S is a full-service automation supplier offering the development of advanced automation solutions within a multitude of businesses – for the medical and other general production industries.
Poul Johansen Maskiner (PJM) was founded by manufacturer Poul Johansen in 1960. Customer focus, unique solutions and quality remain as leading values in the company along with responsibility and respect for people.
Since creating our first automation ideas in an old stable, we have been developing advanced automation solutions for several industries and businesses across the globe.
Global reach and close collaboration
We have a history of long-standing relations with our customers.
Global companies such as LEGO, Novo Nordisk, Coloplast, Danfoss and ConvaTec have been valued customers at PJM for decades, often returning to us again and again in a mutual process of development, creativity and collaboration.
”We are proud to have been able to maintain long-term relationships with our customers. We have built a particularly good platform that serves as a strong foundation for our future.
I think we have a slightly different way of running our company compared to others. We look at the whole person, rather than just their professional skills.
We have a special way with people.”
Poul Johansen, founder
In 1972 the company was turned into a joint-stock company and in 1992, 55% of the stocks were placed in the foundation, Poul Johansen Fonden af 1992 and the rest remained with the family. In April 2021, the majority of shares in PJM was acquired by the BILA Group, Scandinavia’s leading supplier of industrial automation solutions. However, the foundation is still part of the ownership keeping a minority of 20% of the shares.
We work closely with our customers from beginning to end, adding value all the way from first draft to hand-over of an installed and serviced automation solution.
We specialize in the handling of complex processes involving parts manufacturing, assembly, counting and many other processes with small to medium-sized components. Our solutions can be found in the medical industry, in toy production and countless other general industrial manufacturing processes.
While you are the expert in your business area, we are experts in making your production processes better, faster and more profitable.
Our roots and our passion are to be found within traditional, mechanical engineering and automation technology.
Today, we combine classical engineering craftsmanship with advanced robotics, software and digitalization, paving the way for the advanced and efficient industrial production of tomorrow.
Our vision is to be
your excellent solution partner in automation of industrial manufacturing processes.
