Our history

LUND Engineers & Contractors A/S

.

In December 1998, Mikael Lund started as an independent, a consulting engineering company called LUND Engineers & Contractors A/S (also called LUND E&C), based in Horsens.

With Mikael’s skills as an Electrical Engineer and experience from the Oil and Gas industry, LUND E&C offered individual solutions that optimized and integrated production, safety, environmental and energy considerations – All in all, with a focus on creating safe workplaces. The company worked from the start, with everything from larger projects as a general contractor to smaller consulting services as a project advisor.

Over the years, LUND E&C built up a solid project portfolio within the process industry, including the chemical, oil and gas, food, metal, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Why LUND E&C had also managed to build a larger and experienced team and more specialists in everything from electrical and instrumentation to steel and pipe engineering, ATEX specialists as well as supervisors and HSSE people.

Global Functional Safety

.

In 2011, Global Functional Safety ApS (also called ‘GFS‘) was founded as a subsidiary and under the daily management of LUND E&C.

The purpose of the company – which was also a consulting engineering company – was to offer customers all aspects of “Functional Safety” related to processes, equipment and systems.

GFS‘ customers were primarily in the oil & gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical and energy / biomass industries.
GFS was able to create the optimal skills and experience, with TÜV Rheinland certified Experts and Engineers, who could thereby assist in all phases of the “Functional Safety” life cycle, which covers design, maintenance and operation as well as commissioning and follow-up.

Functional Safety Copenhagen

.

In 2014, Functional Safety Copenhagen ApS (also called ‘FSCPH‘) was founded as a subsidiary and under the daily management of LUND E&C and GFS.

The purpose of the company was to hold events exclusively within the subject of “Functional Safety” and to create a network where it was possible to clarify related questions, find practical solutions and product selection in light of legal requirements – all in all with a focus on the importance of “Functional Safety”.

Through their events, FSCPH was able to convey the latest expert knowledge from home and abroad. Among other things. when holding the FS Conference (a 2-day event that has been held since 2015) and at the FS Forum (a 1-day event with “Functional Safety” and networking as a focal point).

In the years 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, LUND E&C received the Gazelle awards from Børsen, as proof of many years of good work and development.

LUND Engineers & Contractors A/S

.

In 2017, LUND E&C had a minor redesign of its logo, which fit better in line with the subsidiaries GFS and FSCPH.

LUND Engineers & Contractors A/S

.

In 2018, LUND E&C celebrated its 20th anniversary and in that connection, the ownership circle was expanded. Mikael Lund was joined by Rikke Lund Jensen and Diana Johansen, with a view to a long-term generational change. All 3 have since been a part of the Management team.

In 2021, LUND E&C, GFS and FSCPH were all ISO 9001 certified for the first time.

.

In 2023, LUND E&C could celebrate 25 years and that became the occasion to bring together the companies LUND E&C, GFS and FSCPH in a joint merger, and the start of a new chapter with one common future.

Same team, same skills – but the new name DotBlue A/S.

Much has happened over the years and the need for “Functional Safety” in the Machine and Process industry has gained more and more focus. Over the years, all 3 companies have worked in parallel in the same industry, with the same purpose and with the same and the same people.

Basically, all 3 companies arose from the need that existed at the time the companies were founded. But today the need has changed and the various services offered by each company have been brought together into one unique supplier.
