History

Aage Hempel was founded in 1933 in Denmark. The main activities after its formation were the importation of steel, batteries, meat and other commodities. Mr Hempel’s brother formed the Hempel paint company.

history-inIn 1992 and under some pressure from Maersk, Aage Hempel Spain was opened with a small office in Algeciras and over the years we have built the company into what it is today.

Aage Hempel Spain, now named Aage Hempel Crame was purely a service company which enabled us to successfully acquire many service agreements with most of the major Marine Electronic Manufacturers. In 2008 this changed due to much pressure from ship owners and Manufacturers alike and we formed a Sales department which is growing very steadily.

In 2008 it was sold to the present owners who are the Arbulu Group, a company also involved in the Marine Electronics Industry in Spain. This large Spanish Group now numbers almost 300 people.

Along the years Aage Hempel Group also grew internationally with the following offices now forming a part of the family:
