Gram is founded on 5 May 1901

Gram is founded on 5 May 1901 when Hans Gram builds an engineering works close to where the present factory now lies. The works, known as Hans Gram Maskinfabrik, has a floor area of 115 m2, which also includes Hans Gram's private home. Although it is a modest beginning, the business enjoys a favourable location close to Vojens station on the new railway line from Padborg to the then Danish-German border at Farris/Vamdrup, a location almost at the very centre of the region.

Specialised refrigeration firm
Initially, the firm functions mostly as a service and fitting business for dairies in Southern Jutland, while also trading in dairy supplies. Gradually, the firm begins to manufacture its own machines for use in dairies, including among other things refrigeration equipment. The company also enters the German market for dairy scales.

Over the years, the firm expands its operations to other industrial sectors as awareness of the benefits of mechanical refrigeration gradually spreads. Gram is thus gradually transformed from a dairy equipment manufacturer into a specialised refrigeration firm.
