From local manufacturer to global acoustic solutions providerOur History

  • 1958

    The first production line for manufacturing of ceiling tiles is established by the BMT Company in Hobro, Denmark. The ceiling tiles are primarily produced for the Danish residential market. Ten years later, the increasing demand leads to the major expansion of the production capacity. The company is re-named Danogips and a large factory for gypsum boards is built.

  • 1971

    In 1971, the growing sales of ceiling tiles lead to the construction of a brand new production line at the premises where Knauf Danoline products are produced to this day.

This opens new possibilities for market expansion, and shortly after the merger, Danoline products are exported worldwide.
