Ryds Bilglas aquires Danglas Autoglasservice

Ryds Bilglas strengthens its market position in Denmark by acquiring Danglas Autoglasservice.

Today we are very proud to be able to inform that Danglas Autoglasservice A/S – in daily speech Danglas, with effect from 1 January 2019 becomes part of Ryds Bilglas A/S.

Danglas has branches in Copenhagen, Roskilde, Odense, Kolding, Aarhus, Herning, Holstebro, Viborg and Aalborg and therefore complements Ryds Bilglas existing branches in Valby, Brøndby, Hillerød and Frederikssund perfectly.

Kenneth Waagenes, CEO of Ryds Bilglas A / S looks forward to lead Danglas further and, not least, Ryds Bilglas A/S, in line with the plans from 2018, is now nationwide within delivery and assembly of glass in passenger cars, buses and trucks.

Danglas started in the 80s by Viggo Hansen, as a natural extension of the work on the bodywork workshop DanCar, where the many cars that came in also had broken windscreens.
The company is today a very well-known player in the Danish market and in Europe, through its long-standing collaboration in ”Automotive Glass Europe”.

Viggo Hansen continues in Danglas – where customers and employees will continue to learn from his extensive experience and knowledge of the industry.

Viggo Hansen says: ”I am happy that we came to an agreement with Ryds Bilglas A/S for the benefit of Danglas customers and employees – and look forward to the journey ahead with Ryds Bilglas – that he has followed with interest from the ”sideline” for several years.”

Kenneth Waagenes continues: ”We feel that Danglas and Ryds Bilglas are a strong match that can offer customers nationwide service and, not least, continue the work of being a skilled and qualified partner towards both new and our many current loyal customers”

We therefore all look forward to being part of everyday life together and not least to creating a strong common future with a focus on quality and high service.
