Dynatest was founded in 1976 and is a highly specialized pavement equipment and computer software programs manufacturer and developer.
The company was founded by Mark Hayven, Richard Stubstad and Anders Sorensen who met together at the Danish Technical University. The team developed the first Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD). Mark Hayven was the commercial brains, Richard Stubstad the civil engineer and Anders Sorensen the mechanical and electronic engineer, all brilliant in their own field.
Dynatest went on to develop the first Heavy Weight Deflectometer and more recently the FastFWD.
In the late 90s Dynatest entered the “mature” profiling market developing the Road Surface Profiler. The RSPIII and RSPIV quickly became a huge success offering excellent quality and reliability.
In 2003 Dynatest purchased the profiling and friction divisions of KJ Law. Dynatest updated the electronics and software producing the 6875, 1295 and 995 friction devices we offer today.
