Daniamant – Be safe at sea
Daniamant ApS, Denmark
Daniamant in Denmark was founded in 1975, importing diamond tools for the building industry. Our first IMO approved Lifejacket Light was used at sea in 1985 – same year as our first approved Liferaft Lighting system was developed. In 1991 IMO regulations were tightened, making lifejacket lights compulsory on vessels undertaking long voyages. Daniamant was there to deliver, and business grew steadily. Another IMO legislation paved the way for further business growth in 1998, when lifejacket lights were made mandatory on all SOLAS vessels.
In 2005, Arne Gillin, together with Dansk Generationsskifte Kapital, bought into Daniamant, starting a new wave of expansion. McMurdo Ltd’s Survivor Lights division in the UK was acquired in 2006. Comet GmbH’s Lifebuoy Lights business was acquired in 2007. And to strengthen Daniamant’s position on the global market, NTR Holding A/S of Denmark acquired Daniamant Holdings A/S in 2010. Today Daniamant is a market leader of Survivor Location Lights solutions.
In January 2016, Daniamant acquired the SL-300 lifebuoy light and the SL-400 lifeboat light from Jotron in Norway. Two quality products to supplement Daniamant’s survivor location light range.
In September 2017, Daniamant acquired the UK based company EchoPilot, specialized in the design, development and manufacturing of advanced Forward-Looking Sonars (FLS).
