As a producer, we have the opportunity to adapt our solutions to the customer's, consultant's or entrepreneur's wishes, so that the greatest satisfaction with the end product is achieved. In addition, the products can be adapted to the architectural conditions and are suitable for the at times harsh nordic climate.

We offer our customers the whole package of production, installation, statutory service, and repairs. We maintain a close dialogue with our customers throughout the process and guarantee fast and competent support. This is how we think you get the right solution installed in the best way.

Our history

HYDRO-CON Elevator A / S was founded on May 5, 1988 by Engineer Frants Oldenburg. Frants, started his career with almost 20 years of experience in a world-renowned crane company, where he contributed to the construction of the world's largest atomic crane in Russia, made elevators that went up to 300 height meters, and built and led a hydraulics department. But his passion for development, and an eye for the lack of quality elevaots and lifts that could sustain the Nordic climate, led him to take the initial steps towards a career change, and he founded HYDRO-CON A/S in the his home town ​​Gilleleje.

HYDRO-CON is a phonetic composition of the first letters of the English words hydraulics and construction. His one man business grew rapidly in both employees, installations and the product range was expanded from freight stairlifts to include person stairlifts and elevators. To date, we have installed several thousand installations, including in Tivoli, Marienborg and many more renouned places. In 1996, Frants founded the sister company RENO-CON A / S, which solely approached the refuse collection industry, by presenting an optimal waste management and transport solution for older properties that met the new rules for the work inspectorate for the garbage collection.

By the year 2000, Frants's son, Ulrik Oldenburg entered HYDRO-CON A/S as a board member, and in 2006 he took over management and production. Thus Frants could again concentrate his core passion - development. The two still work together side by side today.

HYDRO-CON Elevator A/S has changed address four times over the last decades as production and development has grown. However, the company has always been located in Gilleleje, North Zealand where they are an active part of the local area, most recently as a sponsor of the Cultural Harbor.

Articles about us

We will keep the wheels turning - we are open

Like many other companies around the world, we are currently in an untested and unfamiliar situation which we must navigate to the best of our ability.

Ulrik represented HYDRO-CON to about 70 students at a mini business fair at Grib school in early February. The purpose was to make pupils from the 7th and 8th grade clearer about the many different opportunities for jobs in the municipality and what the future may bring.
A lot has happened over the past six months in HYDRO-CON. And as we run our fiscal years from July to June, January was an obvious opportunity to recap on a six-month status for all employees.
