ACelSHOP history

The 23rd of September 2004 ACEL Holding ApS was established in connection with an ownership change of the wholesale dealer of electrical equipment, Aage Christensens Eftf. ApS (1910) and the production company Columbus ApS (1921).

 

One day later the holding company established an operating company, ACelSHOP ApS, which took over the activities from the other two companies.

 

The 1st of October 2004 the company continued its work in the same beautiful surroundings on Lille Strandstræde 14 just as in the past previous 79 years.

 

 

 

Several companies have been located on Lille Strandstræde throughout the years, especially German companies with cables, switches, lights, fuses and not least screws.

 

The clients are mostly wholesale dealers and OEM-companies.

 

Since the 1930s Columbus switches have been exported to the UK and that business is still performing quite well. Some parts of production are outsourced to Estonia and handicap workshops.

 

Because of the increased competition today ACelSHOP has expanded the assortment, mainly through own import, while new and exciting markets are going through rapid development.

 

Therefore, we have great future expectations.

 

Product development and, not least, new logistical solutions, that will be implemented both domestically and internationally in the next few years, has had a positive influence on managers which has motivated the employees.
