Biomass Heavyweight Chooses Copenhagen for Scandinavian Sales Office  

2015.08.18

A large German supplier of wood biomass to power plants, Brünning, has placed its first office outside of Germany in Copenhagen. A large customer base, access to business partners and talent, and the possibility of further expansion in Scandinavia were decisive factors.

Wood biomass for power plants 

The green transition in the energy sector, including replacing coal with biomass, is a priority area in Denmark. By 2050, the country aims to be entirely independent of fossil fuels. This creates business opportunities for companies such as Brünning. The company supplies wood biomass to combined heat and power (CHP) plants, and helps customers, such as recycling centres, to dispose of old wood waste that can be used in incineration plants.

As a result, Brünning decided to place a sales office in Greater Copenhagen; the company’s first outside of Germany.

-''Denmark is a highly interesting market, and Greater Copenhagen was the natural choice for our Danish sales office. Here, we have a large potential customer base, access to both business partners and skilled employees, and the region’s infrastructure makes expansion to the other Scandinavian markets easy,” says Malte Nord, Head of Brünning’s sales office in Denmark.

Reasons for choosing Denmark

The company mainly focused on three factors when choosing Denmark for their Scandinavian sales office:

  1. With Danish CHP plants replacing fossil fuels with biomass, Denmark represents a large growth market for Brünning.
  2. Denmark creates a strong platform for further Scandinavian expansion, mainly due to its geographical location and excellent infrastructure.
  3. Denmark offers many potential business partners such as research institutions, energy organisations, test facilities, recycling centres and a flexible, skilled work force.
