Following its success this year at the world’s largest retail trade fair, EuroShop, the UK’s leading doorway solutions manufacturer, Kenfield has extended its reach in Europe.
Choice of major supermarkets, Kenfield has appointed Daencker as its distributor in Denmark. The appointment forms part of an ambitious strategy for growth across the continent.

Jon Carn, Managing Director of Kenfield, said: “We can’t wait to transform coldrooms for a variety of businesses in Denmark. Our products will open the door to new levels of efficiency, usability and reliability for Danish customers, with the help of Daencker.”
Opening the door to new markets
With a sophisticated sales infrastructure supported by over 200 technicians and dealers, Daencker provides Kenfield with everything necessary for success with its products in Denmark. Daencker and its network offer in-depth knowledge of local markets that will be invaluable in promoting Kenfield.
The two companies will place a particular focus on major supermarket brands, to echo Kenfield’s strong sales in the UK. Denmark’s supermarket sector is filled with a variety of prominent retailers, many of which have a climate-positive outlook – seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. This is ideal for Kenfield’s energy-saving doorway solutions.

Jon continued: “Daencker is an excellent asset to our developing operations in Europe – they understand how our products will be revolutionary for their customers. Not only are the team Denmark’s experts in coldroom equipment and efficiency, but they’re passionate about delivering an incredible service.
“Working with them, we’ve recognised that we share similar company cultures, which makes doing business that much easier. We’re really looking forward to seeing this relationship grow and evolve.”
The new partnership has hit the ground running. Kenfield is delivering on-site training of their products and, together, they are creating Danish-language documentation. Kenfield has also supported Daencker with shipping, delivery and import processes. Danish customers are already reaping the benefits of Kenfield’s patented insulated strip curtains.

Doors Denmark has been waiting for
Trusted by over 16,000 customers, Kenfield’s innovative range of doorway solutions has revolutionised energy efficiency, safety measures and accessibility in a broad range of industries.
As coldroom specialists, Daencker will distribute Kenfield’s insulative products, designed for temperature-controlled environments. Alongside its K2 insulated strip curtains – now being installed by multiple Daencker customers – Kenfield is proud to introduce its revolutionary K750 Energy Door to the Danish market.
K750 Energy Door
Designed to address challenges in cold environments, the award-winning K750 prevents warm air from entering coldrooms, delivering unmatched improvements in energy efficiency, cost reduction, product quality and Health & Safety compliance. Durable, lightweight and custom-built, the K750 has been tested and specified by a range of major food retailers.
Pia said: “Kenfield’s products are revolutionising what we can do with coldroom equipment and what we can offer to operators. We’re excited to be able to showcase in-house what this technology can do, particularly as we haven’t seen these products in Denmark before.
“We’re working together with Kenfield to now create a suite of resources – such as brochures and videos – to market and support its products. Our customers expect the best – easy installation, energy efficiency, durability and cost-effectiveness. Kenfield delivers all these and more, significantly reducing the strain on cooling equipment and addressing pain points, such as ice build-up.”
The international future of Kenfield
A partnership with Daencker marks an important step for Kenfield as it sets its sights on international expansion and introducing innovative doorway solutions to key European markets.
