Junckers – the conscientious choice

Our story began in 1930, when a young Flemming Juncker united his passion for hardwood flooring with a philosophy of sustainable forestry. Until this day, resource optimisation remains deep-rooted in our DNA and we continue to utilise 100% of the forested timber. Junckers’ solid wood floors are based on the traditions of Danish craftsmanship and design, which ensures unique, durable floors of quality. As the only flooring company on the market, we additionally provide our own produced wood-care products for easy maintenance and renovation.

Junckers Industrier A/S is Europe’s leading manufacturer of solid wood flooring for the sports, residential and commercial segments.

At the same time, we are the only flooring company in the market that can complement our products with a carefully balanced range of our own produced wood-care products for regular maintenance and renovation of wooden floors.

The History about Junckers Industrier

Flemming Juncker was a young Danish graduate in forestry with foresight. The young forestry graduate knew that the economic viability of the Danish forests was in a bad condition.

It was necessary to find new fields of application for the wood that had up until then, been used as firewood or simply left in the forests. Flemming Juncker started the sawmill in 1930 to produce an order of 40,000 railway sleepers from beechwood for DSB (The Danish State Railways). In order to do this, he rented 7,000 m² of ground from Køge Shipyard in Denmark and bought a frame saw in Sweden. The production of the railway sleepers was thought to be a one-off assignment. The remaining wood was sold to the Køge Timber Factory. When the collaboration ended, Juncker had to find other ways to dispose of the remaining wood.

This was the beginning of the 2-strip beech parquet board. Two rows of staves assembled into one board on a “Lindermann machine”. The idea of the beech parquet floors was to drive the Swedish pinewood floors out of the Danish housing market. It worked, and the foundations for Junckers’ solid hardwood flooring were now in place.
