From local sawmills to Denmark’s biggest producer of wooden packaging

Dansk Træemballage A/S emerged from well-run local sawmills all over the country; today we’re in a position to call ourselves nationwide – with solid local roots.

We took the name Dansk Træemballage A/S in 1989, when Haastrup Træemballage on Funen merged with Ribe Emballage, but our history goes back much further.

The sawmill in Haastrup was founded in 1915, whereas Ribe Emballage traces its origins to the now defunct Ribe Stampemølle. According to our records, the Ribe Stampemølle was built in 1581 – when Tycho Brahe was busy laying the foundations for modern astronomy – and survived for many years in spite of the local storm surges.

However, the mill was shut down in 1906 and converted into a sawmill and woodworking plant.

In recent years, we have merged with Midtjydsk Savværk og Emballagefabrik (Central Jutland Sawmill and Packaging Factory) in Brande, Nielsen & Løjmar in Hvidovre and Stampen A/S in Flauenskjold.

DTE also produces certified wood pellets under the name stampemøllen.dk.

Today we employ a total of approximately 350 workers at our five production sites, with a turnover of over DKK 500 million per year.
