New Managing Director of Gerstenberg Services A/S
31 March 2016
Dear customers and partners
We are pleased to inform you that as per 1 April 2016 Mr Jesper Andersen will succeed Mr Thomas Halken as Managing Director of Gerstenberg Services A/S.
Since the start of Gerstenberg Services A/S in 2013 the focus has been to develop and market high quality spare parts and service for existing Gerstenberg Perfector lines as well as state-of-the art crystallisation equipment (Polaron) based on the long tradition and values of our mother company, Gerstenberg & Agger A/S.
During his 1½ years' tenure with Gerstenberg Services A/S, Thomas has successfully contributed to the market expansion of the company based on solid partnerships and not least a solid growth in sales of spare parts and service. Our recent commissioning of the first Polaron operating with a direct CO2 compressor is also a consequence of Thomas' persistent efforts securing very attractive solutions for our clients combining the engineering qualities of Gerstenberg with advanced partner technology. These new solutions offer unprecedented margarine product qualities on difficult palm oil based recipes and other recipes.
Thomas will assume a new position as Director in the company Executives Global Network (www.egn.com). To ensure a smooth succession and to assist in other strategic matters we are pleased to inform you that Thomas will continue as Business Advisor to Gerstenberg Services A/S in the future.
To continue the positive development of Gerstenberg Services A/S Mr Jesper Andersen has been appointed Managing Director. As a former Sales Manager of Gerstenberg & Agger A/S (1997 - 2004) Jesper has a profound knowledge of our industry and has lately been employed as Managing Director in Massilly, Denmark.

New design: Springless water seal for all Perfector types
2 June 2014
We are happy to offer you this new design as a reliable solution and a step for further reduction of maintenance cost on your crystallisation line.
The Gerstenberg Services-engineered water seal with a minimum of total components requires very limited maintenance and does not need frequent attention for the necessary adjustment of springs to maintain its sealing ability once mounted on the Perfector.
New tubular scraped surface heat exchanger
Designing a high pressure tubular SSHE is not an easy assignment. However, our customers worldwide have shown great interest in our new company, and many of them expect us to supply more than just spare parts for the existing equipment.
We have decided to take up that challenge and will design, manufacture and test a high pressure tubular SSHE with specifications and features unseen in the fat crystallisation industry. More details will follow end of June this year.
If you would like to receive further information directly about the new SSHE when it is available, please send us an e-mail.
Proven durability of spare parts
The margarine manufacturer s.a. Aigremont n.v. in Belgium has tested some of the spare parts from Gerstenberg Services and they have confirmed that the spare parts tested on e.g. the Perfector SSHE show no indication of wear after 960 hours of production.
‘The improved material of the Gerstenberg Services spare parts has proven to be very efficient and durable, which will save us maintenance time and money’, says the Production Manager from Aigremont.
More than 110 years of experience and still searching for improved solutions.
Gerstenberg & Agger A/S and Gerstenberg Services A/S have a deep understanding of process engineering based on the Gerstenberg family’s more than 110 years of experience in developing high-efficiency equipment for the industry.
