Despite the fierce competition from its Scandinavian and European rivals, Denmark-based V. Brøndum A/S has never been the one to bite the dust. Andrei Bushmarin reports from the company’s headquarters in Silkeborg.

Since the consolidation of the industry, some years back, the number of suppliers of concrete floor grinding and polishing systems has stayed more or less constant.
