TEKNIQ: Danish Mechanical and Electrical Contractors’ Association
The association is the fourth-largest trade/employers’ organisation in Denmark, and thus the second-largest in the construction industry.
The association was founded by the Danish Electrical Contractors’ Association ELFO and the Danish Plumbing, Heating and Ventilating Contractors’ Association on 1 January 2002. Today, it represents around 3,000 mechanical and electrical contractors in the electricity and the plumbing, heating and ventilating industries – about 1,800 electrical contractors and about 1,200 plumbing, heating and ventilating contractors.
The member contractors cover a wide field and, in terms of size, range from the small single proprietorship to big mechanical and electrical contractors with more than 2,000 employees. Their combined turnover amount to more than DKK 30 billion a year and they employ around 40,000. More than 95% of the employees are skilled – an unusually high percentage from an industry point of view.
