Ernex AS is an industrial company specializing in the production of building saws and trolleys and carts for industrial, medical, catering and other purposes. We also offer the rental of our machine park, including welding, laser cutting, machining and specialized production of steel products.
The actual Ernex name dates back to 1984 as a continuation of the Gjerdesagen brand, but the story dates back to the 50s. We supply products over all of Norway as well as large parts of northern Europe. In October 2018, Grimstål Produkter became part of Ernex through a company merger. Today Ernex has just over 40 employees and is located on our premises in Tistedal, on the outskirts of Halden. The company has an annual turnover of approx. NOK 1.6 million. Today, the company is owned by Eagle AS, Petersborg Invest and Rune Fredriksen, who is also the CEO.
«Created by Professionals for Professionals»
It was the Norwegian builder Arne Gjerde who in his time developed the world’s first building saw with a turntable. With his background in the industry, Arne Gjerde saw a clear need for better and more efficient aids. He combined the then-known principles from existing building saws, with the revolutionary use of turntable and ball joint arm. The product became so well-known that today a building saw is synonymous with “Gjerdesagen®”. Over 350,000 saws have been sold from 1950 until today.
Over the years, a complete range of accessories has been developed that meet the professional requirements of a building saw. Although the saws have improved over the years, the basic concept is still the same. Today, the saws are exported to approximately 10 countries and the number is ever increasing. This is proof that thousands of building professionals are focused on the one alternative that covers their needs:
The Unique Gjerdesagen Concept
The secret behind Gjerdesagen’s exceptional progress can be found in the unique concept. Adjustments are possible for all types of work. No matter how you turn and or bevel the saw blade, the lifting arm is always on the same side of the table. The swivel disc can be rotated from 0-135 ° and the saw blade is tilted up to 45 ° – at the same time! The conversion is simple and you are quickly able to continue with your project. This conversion ensures a universal machine that can easily carry out difficult sawing, cutting, beveling and miter angling work.
Trolleys and Carts
Grimstål Produkter is one of the few remaining companies in Norway that is engaged in the self-production of steel materials for hospitals, catering kitchens, bakeries, laundries, institutions and other similar industries. We have a large range of standard products in stainless, lacquered steel, and combinations of the previous with wood and laminate. In addition we can specialize production based on the client’s needs and requirements. Imagination is the limit. We work with the client and prepare a 3D model so the client gets a feel for the product before it is put into production. We can also customize all our standard products.
«NORWEGIAN PRODUCED QUALITY»
All our products (with a few exceptions) are produced in our production facility in Tistedal outside of Halden, Norway. All of our employees have extensive experience in the field, and we put our soul into the quality of our products, ensuring they should be at the very highest level. Grimstål products are robust and solid and the finish is impeccable, whether it be stainless or lacquered steel. We have our own paint shop that lacquers according to the client’s desires.
