Linddana was founded by Svend Lind in 1980. He is originally blacksmith and mechanic. Prior to 1980 he was a production manager in a local company.
In 1978 Svend Lind (SL) purchased a piece of woodland.In 1980 he started to clear the forest but realised that there was no wood chipper in Denmark that was strong enough for forestry and agricultural work. He decided to develop a wood chipper for professional use.
That same year, SL purchased “Thyregod Productions”, a company with a production facility of 500 m2. He also got involved in the production of furnaces, which financed the development of the first wood chipper. The development work was carried out with the assistance of “Skovteknisk Institut” (Forestry Institute). The product name “TP Wood Chippers” originates from Thyregod Productions.
In 1981 the first prototype was introduced. It was a forestry machine, which was able to chip wood and branches up to 25 cm in diameter. The first chipper corresponds to the current TP 270 PTO model. An enormous storm in 1981 resulted in the company´s first major order of 8 machines to Rold Forest. In 1982 Thyregod Productions joined an export group and started to look for partners abroad.
Thyregod Productions received its first export orders in 1983 from France and Switzerland after having joined the big forestry exhibition “Elmia” in Sweden. Special requests from the Swiss customer required new development work, which resulted in new technical improvements to the TP Wood Chipper.
In 1984 another two new wood chippers were developed for use in both forestry and agricultural environments. Further this year a partner in Germany – Gerhard Dücker KG – and Thyregod Productions started joint production of wood chippers as sales of TP wood chippers increased substantially both in Denmark but also abroad.
In 1986 SL bought an industrial property in Ølholm by Tørring and built a 1800 m2 factory, which today is the home of Linddana A/S.
In 1989 the first wood chipper in the park range went into production and sales to the German market increased after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Exports continued to increase subsequently and sales gradually moved to new markets.
In 1990 a big order to Ethiopia of 14 machines became a reality. The wood chippers were used for cutting up sugar cane to make briquettes for fuel in order to save the country´s woodlands.
That year the company changed it´s name to Linddana and became a limited company.In 1992 the company was extended by an additional 2200 m2. The first TP Wood Chipper in the garden range went into production that year.
In 1993 the business were doing so well that the production of furnaces finishedThe same year a project in Poland involving wood chips for heating purposes finished and the company started collaboration between Danish Energy Authority on a project on use of wood chips for district heating in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
In 1994 Linddana A/S was awarded the Tørring-Uldum Municipality Business Award for continuous product development, for environmentally-friendly machines and for excellent management and continuous development of the company
Focus was put on wood chippers for the park range in 1996 and three new models went into production that same year. Additional factory extensions were made and new technological initiatives were introduced i.e. laser cutting. 1996 was also that year where a partnership with “Gosniti” – Institute of Technology in Moscow was established
Change in ownership
In 2001 the company went through a generational change. Svend Lind´s three daughters became members of the board.
In 2003 the administration buildings went through a major renovation and today the company appears as a modern and quality-conscious work environment with 4500 m2 of production and storage area and 800 m2 og administration and show room area.
In 2006 the biggest forest model was introduced – TP 400 – which can take tree trunks up to 40 cm in diameter.
