Pursuing new heights

The whos, hows and whys

In 2006, Gram BioLine was founded by Gram Commercial, which has been known for ist professional quality cooling solutions for decades. Our products are characterised above all by their high reliability. With its uniquely designed products Gram BioLine caters to applications where specifications for temperature sensitive items are at their highest.

Controlled biostorage

In the competitive commercial world of bioscience, there can be huge investments riding on the speed, dependability and success of research work, R&D and biomedical breakthroughs. Therefore, we understand that the controlled preservation of biomaterials is an intense focus. In both commercial bioscience and scientific research, the window of opportunity can be exceedingly limited and development time frames under heavy scrutiny. Since such biomaterial is often in short supply and its procurement and development is an expensive undertaking, you must be able to rely on your storage facilities at all times.

Our high-performance refrigerators and freezers are therefore essential to keeping this sensitive material within meticulously controlled storage parameters.

From better to best

Gram Commercial has therefore applied all its vast range of refrigeration and freezer know-how to providing the ultimate in meticulously controlled, highly dependable biostorage. 

We design the BioLine range with all the mission-critical components and systems to exceptional specifications, and with every detail super-optimised to tackle the exceptional demands of discerning bioscience customers.

We focus on making BioLine cabinets and systems supremely reliable, so you can be sure of keeping delicate, high-value bioscience materials under perfect conditions at all times, with a minimum of effort or concern.

In the business of "cold" for over 100 years

Established in 1901 by Hans Gram, it was not set in stone that refrigeration would be Gram's core business for almost a century. But as with many things in life, one thing leads to another.

Hoshizaki + Gram Commercial

In 2008, Gram Commercial A/S became part of Hoshizaki Electric Co. Ltd., a Japanese company established in 1947 which enjoys a leading position worldwide within professional kitchen and food service products.

Hoshizaki is particularly well known for its ice-cube makers, and the company was the first to introduce a fully automatic ice-cube machine in Japan. In addition to the domestic Japanese market, the Hoshizaki Group owns factories in North America, South America (Mexico and Brazil), Europe (UK) and Asia (China and India).


The Group's European headquarters are near Amsterdam and were established in 1992. The Group's export markets presently cover more than 60 countries. The Hoshizaki Group is quoted on the Tokyo stock exchange.

Managing Quality - Managing our core values

We at Gram BioLine strive persistently and purposefully to deliver the quality of products and service that we feel our customers warrant.  Quality across the full spectrum of the definition, is maintained through managing risks, timely and adequate preventative- or corrective measures, endless efforts for improvements and a company-wide consensus of what “good quality” is and how to obtain and maintain.

Environmentally speaking, the little and big picture

The act of taking responsibility, in its purest human sense, is something that is derived from within. It is something that you as a person take upon yourself.

But when assessing responsibility in a wider, more holistic sense – responsibility suddenly goes from a micro perspective; taking care of your family, being part of a football club etc., to macro, where the term responsibility is interpreted to be comprehensive, and extensive in subject matter.

Much like quality management, where internal audits should be needless, since proper procedures are in place. We at Gram BioLine believe that responsibility should come from within, even when it comes to corporate responsibility.
