Advanced research, development and testing facility


In 2005 Dahl Engineering established a 900 m² factory building, containing Denmark’s only test facility for dynamic tests (crash tests), a hydraulic tensile testing facility, a prototype workshop and production facilities for research, product development and manufacturing.

In March 2006 the building was extended by 270 m² and again in 2011 by 400 m².


Dahl Engineering is recognized as national test laboratory by the Danish Road Safety agency (Færdselsstyrelsen). Certification tests in accordance with EU directives and international safety standards, supervised by the accredited test institute TÜV Rheinland can also be performed on the company’s test facility.
