About HITSA

WHAT WE DO.
HITSA A/S makes high-quality street furniture and other functional products for urban outdoor spaces.

For more than 25 years, we have worked closely with municipalities, landscape gardeners, housing associations, and developers to add an attractive, functional, and enjoyable touch to streets, parks, and other public areas.

In addition, a close partnership with Danish designers and architects allows us to provide a wide range of high-quality products, including bicycle stands, tables and bench sets, and shelters.

If customers cannot find the exact product in our range that matches their preferences and requirements, we can provide them with customised and tailor-made solutions.

All of the products are manufactured in our factory in Hejs, which is located south of Kolding in Denmark.

OUR VALUES

• Quality: at HITSA we believe that quality is an important factor in any purchase. All of our products are therefore made from high-quality materials that can withstand the wind and weather and will provide use and satisfaction for many years to come.

• Flexibility: HITSA believes that flexibility is the best way to maintain customer loyalty. This means that we respond quickly to inquires from customers and we deliver on time, even at short notice.

• Product development: HITSA believes that well-thought-out, user-orientated design is the basis for achieving a successful result; we take pride in developing solutions in collaboration with customers and designers.

HITSA ORIGINS

HITSA is a family-owned company that was established in 1984. Its founder, qualified blacksmith Svend Aage Bertelsen, began making products for urban spaces from a hen house in his back garden. Svend Aage quickly gained a reputation for high quality and excellent service.

Initially, Svend Aage took care of the entire business– manufacture, assembly, sales and administration– but as the business grew, his wife Inger and son Allan took on crucial roles, and it transformed into a family business. The company soon had to move to new premises to cope with demand.

In 2005, after several years of growth, HITSA became a public limited company. Son Allan and his sister Helle became shareholders. Svend Aage left the company eight years later at the age of 69 to enjoy a well-earned retirement.

Though many years have passed since HITSA started out with Svend Aage working in his hen house, the passion for high quality and excellent service remains a vital part of the company’s success.
