This was the item Arne Bundgaard Jensen had to sell back in 1945, when he needed money to buy a bicycle and auto repair shop in Højbjerg, Denmark, for a business idea.
He named the business Højbjerg Maskinfabrik (Højbjerg Machine Factory), or in short, HMF.
Later, Bundgaard changed his focus to fit the increasing demand on truck equipment, and by 1947 he started to produce agricultural trailers and tipping bodies.
Arne Bundgaard Jensen was a resourceful man! As he noticed a new demand in the market, he changed HMF’s focus again. In 1952, HMF produced its first ever truck mounted crane.
The rest is history! Today HMF is Denmark’s only and one of the world’s leading loader crane manufacturers with a presence in the entire world.
