100% Danish Heaters for Buses

This article first appeared in the Bus-News magazine, Issue 1 2023.

Two topics have been in the news a lot lately – the price of fuel and climate change.

These topics affect transport operators too. Operating costs need to be kept low and transitioning to net zero is a central concern. Most of the discussion here focuses on traction power, but there are many other components that use energy that can contribute to efficiencies and sustainability. We chatted to Søren Rasmussen from Stroco to find out what the Danish heater manufacturer is doing in these areas.

Josephine Cordero Sapién: Stroco ApS manufactures heating solutions for buses. What’s the company’s back story?

Søren Rasmussen: The company was founded in 1972 by Jørgen Strøier together with Holger Pedersen. In 1972 Holger Pedersen was working at a garage in Varde, Denmark that dealt with buses and trains – it had a workshop for these types of vehicles. Strøier came to that garage from another company and the two got talking. They realised they could make a new type of heater for buses and trains though these days the company just makes heaters for buses.

What was new about the heaters they devised was that they were heaters that used water. Previously there were only air heaters on the market so Strøier and Pedersen invented this new type of heater.

Initially, Holger Pedersen ran a company called HP Machinery, while Strøier ran Stroco. Both of them passed on their companies to their sons – and HP Machinery became JP Machinery. In 2020 JP Machinery then bought Stroco but later this year everything will be consolidated into just Stroco, which is easier for our customers to understand from a branding perspective.
