The story of Dana-Seals A/S

Dana-Seals is founded by technical engineer Per Gyllich. In 1992, after a long career as manager in the sealing industry, he and his wife Christina Gyllich started their customised sealing production in North Zealand, Denmark.

Dana-Seals soon became a well known brand in the industry, respected for their ingenious solutions made by loyal and experienced engineers and technicians. Applications to all kinds of conditions are always made to perfection, and promises are always kept.

Then and today, Dana-Seals is known as a company worth working for. Some employees have been at Dana-Seals from the very beginning in 1992 to this day, and customers call Dana-Seals ‘The gentlemen of the industry’.
