Laur. Knudsen, Mechanical Establishment. Started in 1893, by Laurits Peter Knudsen as a watch and chronometer shop in Colbjørnsensgade. Later, the manufacture of electrical equipment was made, and this quickly became so great that the watch and chronometer manufacturing had to be abandoned. After Laur. Knudsen's death in 1917 the business was sold, while the factory was transferred by a joint-stock company under the old company name with Herman Jørgensen and BAJM Petersen as directors. Herman Jørgensen was for 40 years in connection with the company, from 1903 as an engineer and from 1917 to his death as director. In 1919 a new factory was started in Haraldsgade, and the entire company was moved in 1921. This is the 1957 picture of their building at that time. (translated from Danish)
