Todo sobre HARDI

A Danish industrial fairy-tale 
The HARDI idea started in 1957, when Hartvig Jensen established the company. He was a gardener and needed a quality sprayer. After a few years the company expanded horticulturally and invested in large production facilities outside Copenhagen. The HARDI sprayers were soon retailed not only to Danish, but also European farmers, and the company expanded rapidly.


HARDI was founded more than 50 years ago in Denmark. In 2007, the company joined EXEL Industries (approx. EUR 450 million revenue, 2,600 employees) which is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange. World leader in spraying technology, EXEL Industries is present in the three major spraying areas: Industry (spray guns and other application equipments for liquid, viscous or powder products), Consumers (hand operated sprayers for gardening) and Agriculture (field, orchard and vineyard sprayers).
