Our history

Danfilter’s journey

Danfilter is a growth company with a strong focus on the development of our employees and markets, but this hasn’t always been the case. The company dates back to the early 1980s. However, the current ownership structure has only been in place since 2014, when Henrik Friis took over Danfilter.

Our production in Denmark started in 2013 as a result of long product development. We weren’t able to purchase the quality we were looking for, and it was impossible to predict what we had to have in stock. As a result, we started producing in-house, and it has taken off since.

The Danfilter family is growing fast. We employ an increasing number of employees in the following departments:
