World-class surface treatment

World-class surface treatment

Dangard A/S has seven factories that provide the largest factory capacity globally for surface treatment of large and small components for the wind turbine industry and other industries producing steel structures.


Dangard A/S was established on 1 January 2020 through a merger of the factory activities of the Danish providers of surface treatment, Dancoat A/S and Gardit A/S.

Gardit was founded in Viborg in 1923 and is a Danish company specialising in surface treatment of standing structures. The company has been owned and run by the Laursen family for four generations.

Dancoat is run by the owner-manager, Henrik Matthiesen, and was founded in 2007. The company specialises in cleaning and corrosion protection of steel structures in all corrosion classes and paints everything from large steel structures, tanks, and silos to small parts.

The merger of the two companies’ factory activities has taken place in the newly established company DanGard A/S, which is owned 50/50 and managed by the two owner-managers, Henrik Matthiesen and Morten Lindholt Laursen.
