Our history

Dameca A/S was founded in 1947 by Arne Finn Schramm, Poul Nielsen and Henry Faigh in a basement in Rødovre, Copenhagen. The philosophy was to manufacture Danish-produced anesthesia machines. The company was started with a modest investment. In 1948, the first anesthesia machine (Kinoorgel) was introduced to the market.
In 1965, Dameca headquarters moved to Islevdalvej 211, Rødovre, at which time Arne Finn Schramm became the sole owner. Today this location is a 4500 m2 modern factory. Over the years Dameca has grown with evolving technologies and the product portfolio has continuously expanded. Since startup, Dameca’s own development and manufacturing has delivered more than 35,000 anesthesia machines worldwide.

Product development and customer focus has always been - and remains - one of the cornerstones of Dameca’s success, and this has resulted in many unique solutions.

In 2011, Dameca A/S was acquired by Royal Philips and continued under the name Philips Anesthesia Care A/S. On July 1st, 2016 a number of private Danish investors reacquired the business from Royal Philips to once again market the product portfolio under the Dameca brand. The investor group includes second and third generations of the founder Arne Finn Schramm, employees, board members, as well as a strategic supplier.

Today, Dameca is 100% Danish owned and continues with many of the same talented and dedicated employees for the benefit of our customers.
