DE-Icing of roads -
through reliability, innovation, functionality, and service
Constantly on the move
Epoke is a company constantly on the move. Just like nature that forms the basis for our existence.
In spite of the global success Epoke is never resting on its laurels. The entire organization is in fact filled with a strong passion for development and optimization. Every single day dedicated employees contribute to creating more intelligent solutions and better products, which will benefit the customers around the world.
The foundation of the company Concepts such as reliability, innovation, functionality, and service have always been the cornerstone of Epoke. Since the 1950s an innovative outlook has created solutions for combating slippery roads. Today Epoke holds just the right combination of experience and new thinking to meet an exciting future with new demands and challenges. The Epoke Development Department works closely with Danish customers in order to develop and test new products. This is the basis of a strong position on the Danish market, which in turn forms the basis of a major global export activity. Epoke also has a strong service organization. Through subsidiary companies in Germany and Poland along with a strong network of local distributors and service centers we provide both competent advice and premium service on all markets. This is one of the main reasons that we have achieved the strong global position, we have today. Epoke is the leading manufacturer of liquid spreaders, and in the division in Randers we have gathered all expertise for testing, development, and production of liquid spreaders under one roof. The Epoke range of liquid spreaders is extensive and consists of spreaders with capacities ranging from 100 liters (sidewalk spreaders) up to 17500 liters (motorway spreaders).
Firm as a rock
Times are changing, but Epoke stands solid as a rock. The company is healthy, financially sound, and employs approx. 250 employees, mostly engaged in development, manufacturing, service, and sales from its headquarters in Vejen.
80 years of development
The beginning The founder of Epoke, Alfred Thomsen, did not inherit his ingenuity from strangers. As early as the 1930s his father, Ole Christian Thomsen, invented the sewer-cleaning device “Grab”, which became a reality thanks to Alfred’s ability to turn ideas into marketable products.
Today the Epoke product program covers most needs and consists of intelligent solutions adapted to various markets around the world. The most import areas of focus of Epoke product development include environmental awareness, reliability, user-friendliness, and the possibility of individual adaptation.
Wide Range of Innovative Products
Epoke develops a wide range of machines for efficient winter road maintenance. Every year more than 2,000 new machines leave the Epoke factory. The product program ranges from salt spreaders, liquid spreaders, combination-spreaders, airport spreaders, brine mixing systems to snow plows. In addition, professional grass mowers for tractor mounting are available. The product range includes machines for winter road maintenance on all types of roads and squares: Bike paths, pedestrian areas, parking areas, airports, highways, freeways, etc. Our extensive list of customers counts private contractors, municipalities, regions, road directorates, and motorway concessionaries. Reliability with long service life All products leaving the Epoke factory are made for professional use – year after year. Through continuous development based on solid experience we manufacture machines, which give our customers optimal reliability. Innovative design Design is an integrated part of our business strategy. We have a clear approach to product design, and we aim at creating functional machines, which clearly show their interconnectedness, and include ergonomic solutions for both drivers and maintenance personnel. Demands for efficiency In modern day society a well-working infrastructure is crucial. Businesses and citizens won’t accept to be put out of action due to non-passable roads, and it’s not acceptable that everything in the community stops, when winter weather sets in. Accessibility and safety must be ensured, and modern slippery roads control must be efficient and as gentle on the environment as possible. This is where Epoke enters the field as one of the leading global manufacturers of equipment to combat slippery roads. Our reliable and accurate machines ensure an efficient effort, and the Epoke SIRIUS COMBI AST high-speed spreader as well as the VIRTUS AST liquid spreader are the preferred machines used by road directorates, motorway concessionaries, and not least private contractors due to the fact that these machines allow slippery roads control to be performed at high speeds while minimizing the salt consumption.
