TREPKO History

  • 1947

    The company was founded by Mr. Poul Petersen, who started out the company working together with an old friend also with the name Petersen. Thereby the name became “TREPKO” meaning three P’s in company. After a few years, Mr. Petersen retired from the company leaving Mr. Poul Petersen as the sole owner.

    The first factory was situated in the center of Copenhagen: Steen Winkelsvej 6, Frederiksberg. The factory with the phone number „LUNA 1056” consisted of a office containing 3 small rooms, and a workshop around the corner with 7 workers. The office housed for many years a part-time secretary, a part time engineer, as well as the founder and his son, who were both engineers.

    The first types of filling machines were constructed for the filling of marmalade. Later machines were developed for the filling of mayonnaise based salads, including a closing system for the application of plastic lids to plastic cup.

  • 1962 – 1964

    1962
    The company moves out of its original premises and into a newly built tailor-made factory at Rugvanget in Taastrup (just outside Copenhagen).

    1964
    A new filling machine for the filling of yoghurt into plastic cups was developed. In Denmark it was now allowed to add fruit to yoghurt and consequently the market for fruit yoghurt boomed, and TREPKO supplied the required filling machines to the many local dairies in Denmark. The filling machines soon became known as sturdy and effective machines, which proved them ideal for export. During the following years export to overseas countries in the middle east and practically all over the world picked up

  • 1972

    Prior to the Olympic Games in Moscow there was a great interest in the production of Cottage Cheese for the sportsmen and the visitors to the games. This came to be the start of a large order for fillers for Cottage Cheese – not only to dairies in Moscow but also in the large Russian towns along the Trans Siberian railway. The order forced the company to expand the factory to include a larger factory at Kuldyssen 15 in Taastrup.

  • 1975 – 1996

    1975
    Technically TREPKO had some interesting years. The machines were developed to handle many new products – for instance margarine and butter – products that required a system with continuous feeding of the product through a compensator.

    As the Danish dairies were merging, capacity requirements rose, whereby the capacity of the machines was increased. The filling/closing machines were thereby now supplied with up to 8 parallel lanes. These machines were not only of interest to the large Danish dairies, but also increasingly interesting to the large international food companies around the world.
