Henry and John worked together in the consulting engineering company Tage Olsen in Copenhagen. Here they worked with the sale and dimensioning of electric motors in the period 1967 and forward.

During their work, various opportunities appeared that John and Henry wanted to pursue. They learned from their work that the customers' need for electric motors with small electronic controllers became larger and larger. So, when they got the opportunity to make an agreement with an English supplier about an agency for electric motors, and at the same time electronic components were becoming available in the market, they had the foundation to put a business model together. This became L & S Control, which sold electric motors and associated electronic solutions. The electronic components were assembled and delivered from subcontractors during the start-up phase. L & S Control therefore originated as an engineering consulting firm.

The official birthday of L & S Control is established as June 14, 1969.
