AI interview with Eivin Jørgensen, CEO, EFD Induction

by Steve Barclay

INTERVIEW - EFD Induction is Europe’s largest—and the world’s second largest—supplier of industrial induction heating solutions. The company was established in 1996 through the merger of Germany’s FDF with Norway’s ELVA. The former was a well-established induction hardening specialist. The latter, an agile newcomer that had pioneered the use of solid state technology to devise smaller, lighter, more flexible and more efficient induction systems.

The company’s heritage is important to CEO Eivin Jørgensen. “Absolutely,” says Jørgensen from EFD Induction’s corporate HQ in Norway. “Our focus from the very start has been crystal clear: harness this amazing technology called induction to create value for our customers. Of course, it’s easier said than done, but it’s this focus that drives us forward.”
