About Gram Equipment
The history of Gram goes far back to the beginning of 1900 when Hans Gram started a smithy business in the countryside which developed into a huge industrial success. Gram soon became known for its excellent quality within freezing and cooling techniques. In 1930 ice cream was introduced into Denmark and Gram supplied the first automatic machine for the manufacturing of ice creams and ice bar sticks.
In 1999 Gram Equipment was established and the company has since then developed into one of the leading suppliers of equipment and solutions for the ice cream industry worldwide. This leading position was strengthened in 2014 when Gram Equipment acquired WCB Ice cream. With the acquisition the combined resources and talent of the two companies allowed for the continued supply of the very well-respected brand and quality products. Gram Equipment is now the global leading supplier of advanced equipment and process installations for industrial ice production.
