Dedication and focus for more than 75 years
Our past makes us the company we are today. We have extended our range over the years, but we still aim to make high-quality products for sealing, absorption, and protection purposes.
We have always had close ties to sealing
DAFA A/S was founded in 1939 by Børge Norby, who established Dansk Tætningsliste Fabrik A/S for the manufacture and installation of bronze sealing strips for doors and windows.
Ole Norby took over the company in 1970 and stood at the helm until 2003, when Klaus Østerberg was appointed as the new CEO. He remained in this position until his retirement in 2007, when his son, Jacob Norby, became CEO.
Jacob Norby chose to stand down in 2014, and Bo Ankerfelt was appointed new CEO of DAFA A/S in October the same year. In the spring 2018, Jacob Norby is back as CEO.
DAFA A/S consists today of a parent company and head office in Denmark, and subsidiaries in Italy, China, Poland, Sweden, Germany, and USA. The group employs around 305 staff, and has annual revenue of approx. EUR 54 million.
Our passion is part of our DNA
We have stuck to our original core business – the manufacture and sale of sealing strips and jointing materials – throughout the years. But we have extended our product range significantly – particularly in recent years – with a growing focus on matching the different needs of our customers.
Crystal clear plan for the future
We have a clear growth strategy, and are mindful of the stronger competition on both the Danish and international markets. That is why we also have the clear aim of continuing our expansionary development, by adhering to the basic qualities which have always characterized DAFA: flexibility, quality products, and skilled employees.
Our customers work primarily in construction og industry. We also have considerable exports through the products we supply to Danish export companies.
