Our story began in 1932 in a small basement on Kastelvej in Copenhagen. Down in the basement, the young entrepreneur Alfred Petersen started a company that produced wrought iron lamps, handrails and water diffusers. The company, which was aptly named Alfred Petersens Jernvarefabrik (directly translated to Alfred Petersen’s iron item factory), formed the basis for the company you know and love today.
After almost 20 years in the basement, Petersen decided to move Jernvarefabrikken from Kastelvej to an industrial area of Rødovre not far from Copenhagen. It was here that the production of galvanized thimbles and turnbuckles began. Both items were precursors for products that we still produce to this day.
As contact to the marine industry was established during the 1950s, the demand for stainless steel fittings arose. By request of Paul Elvstrøm stainless thimbles and shackles was put into production in 1958 and so began the stainless programme.
Now located in Haderslev, Blue Wave is still a family-owned and led manufacturing company; our CEO is the third generation to run the business. The team consists of 50 skilled employees many of which have been dedicated to ensure solid quality for more than 25 years.
