In 1937 Cato Herulf Evensen starts his own company at the age of 24.
The company’s first products were standard box furnaces for annealing, hardening and enamelling. Also a range of ceramic kilns were introduced. The company obtained an order for two large tunnel kilns in 1947. These kilns are still in operation.
Through installations of surface coating lines for aluminium products, CHE’s innovative ideas and quality products were appreciated by Norway’s aluminium industry, which resulted in numerous deliveries of heat treatment furnaces to companies like Hydro Aluminium and Raufoss.
In the 70’s CHE went into the export market, especially within the Hot Dip Galvanising industry world wide. In 1970 CHE installed the world’s largest galvanising bath at Vickers in Newcastle, UK; a top fired ceramic bath with 1,100 tons of zinc at 17.5 metres length.
Today CHE has more than 4000 installations in more than 50 countries worldwide.
