In 1927, less than two years after he emigrated from Denmark to the United States, Kristian Jensen, Sr. started Jensen's, Inc., an automobile business. He soon responded to a need for new houses and began selling mobile and manufactured homes to retirees and first time buyers. Developing and managing communities was recognized as a logical extension of the corporation and soon became the entire operation.
It has been a great transition from the mobile homes and parks of years gone
by to the modern manufactured houses and communities of today.
Our corporate office is located in Southington, CT. We have area Vice Presidents in charge of the various states and a trained manager for each community. Pictured below are: Seated Left to Right: Assistant Vice President-James Sonday, President-Kristian Jensen III, Vice President-Keith Jensen; Middle Row Left to Right: Treasurer-Alan Krieger, Vice President-Joseph Esposito; Back Row Left to Right: Director of Marketing-Raymond Finocchio, Vice President-Tom Flanders, Assistant Vice President-Michael Kane.
Currently there are 31 JENSEN communities®. A few of these were started by others, purchased by us and upgraded to our standards, but most we developed from inception. We continue to look for new opportunities.
Our financial stability is excellent. Dun and Bradstreet gave us a rating of 4A2, and our banking relationships with Webster Bank in Connecticut and Bank of America in South Carolina are envied by many. We are a member of the local Chamber of Commerce in each of our locations. We encourage our officers to be active in state and regional trade associations, thereby making the latest industry developments immediately available to our personnel and residents.
Jensen is a privately held company and like all corporations, we have a Board of Directors supervising overall policy. Kristian Jensen III is President and CEO.
We promote a corporate culture where ideas are brought to the table from all levels, and we encourage a sense of responsibility in all our associates.
Each Jensen community is a desirable place to live. We have a tradition of on-going improvement programs in each community. Our senior officers provide their knowledge and experience to younger management to assure continuity from generation to generation. We encourage you to check our proven track record with local business leaders in the communities where we are located. While we're very proud of our past, we are extremely enthusiastic about our future. Please join us and the thousands of people who call a Jensen community their home.
