The founders of Borncut invented the “portioncutter” as we know it, as early as 1992. At that time, they were employed at the company NORFO, a small company bases on Bornholm. NORFO was sold the Danish company Scanvaegt International, which later again was sold to the Islandic company Marel.
During all that time, the founders were occupied with further develop, implementing new technology, and develop Bornholm as a portioning center worldwide. During all that time, the inventors were occupied with develop the portion technology.
The following years, and as late as December 2015 the Portioncutter was further developed and produced on Bornholm.
In March 2015 Marel decided to close down the factory and all operation on Bornholm and moved the operation to their factory in Jutland by the end of 2015.
This was the trigger and a starting point, for a decision starting up our own company, and develop a new Portioning Cutter, that could fulfill our own demands.
In March 2016 Borncut was founded by Gorm Sørensen, Peter Mikkelsen, Casper Poulsen and Ole Schou Mortensen. A large new development project started.
The first location was a small office at “Møbelfabrikken” in Nexø, – a startup facility. In October 2016, we moved to a larger location, at Almindingsvej in Rønne, were we established both office and workshop.
In March 2017, we signed a distribution agreement with Scanvaegt Systems. At the same time the new Portioncutter BC 225D, Dual machine and the BC 225R single machine, was released for sale.
In August 2017, we released BC 225S, a real single line machine.
