About Svitzer A/S

Compliance with national as well as international legislation and conventions is a natural part of this. We believe in sustainability and endeavour to protect the environment through waste reduction, energy efficiency and pollution prevention.
The story of the salvage company Em.Z.Svitzers Bjergningsentreprise (Svitzer) begins in 1833. The founder Emil Zeuthen Svitzer was an entrepreneural tradesman who saw the potential of establishing a salvage business on the basis of the many unfortunate losses occurring on trade routes to and from Denmark.

Being around since 1833, means we’ve seen a lot of changes in our industry: We were around when the closed diving suit was invented in 1842. We were there when the Suez Canal opened in 1869. And we lived the change of going from sail to diesel. More importantly, we’ve learned from everything we’ve seen. It is the sum of experience from 180 years of running a towage and salvage company with operations all over the world we put at our customers disposal.
