About us

History

AC Hydraulic A/S is a family owned company situated in Viborg, Denmark.

The company was established in 1958 by master smith Anker Christensen (AC). Shortly after launching his handicraft and repair shop Anker Christensen was inspired to design and develop high quality lorry and workshop cranes.

His original concept became the base of production and the AC crane was soon known in all of Denmark for its high quality.

Development of a wide range of lifting equipment soon took place and with the extended product range the company was ready to move into export.

Today AC Hydraulic A/S is a medium-sized, financially sound company exporting more than 80% of its production. The company is managed by the 3rd generation, sole owners, Søren and Claus Anker Christensen.
