About Us


Dafo was founded in 1919 by Nils Forssberg and John Danielson, under the name Danielson Forssberg & Co. In the mid-70s the name was changed to DAFO Brand, where DAFO is an abbreviation for DAnielson and FOrssberg. Dafo was one of the first companies in the world to start developing integrated firefighting solutions for vehicles back in 1976.

In 2009, Dafo Brand decided to set up a representative for Dafo fire suppression systems in Germany. Due to the constantly increasing number of vehicles with fire suppression systems, as well as the growing demand from customers, it became necessary to be able to carry out sales and service tasks for customers faster, cheaper and more efficiently.
