Second generation leader
Jens A. Serigstad (1887–1975) led the Serigstad Maskinverksted through dramatic and turbulent times, from 1910 to 1956. Here he is in full concentration with the development of a lift for straw in 1952.
The first years with Jens A. Serigstad at the helm of the family business were tough. Jens was young and ambitious. Courage and faith in the future were crucial. The business owner had what it took, even to ask the brothers for their signature on the guarantor papers. The Serigstad family was strong and had faith in the future.
