GW Sprinkler was named after Geo Werner, a Danish Engineer who founded the company in Copenhagen in 1955. It started off installing ventilation systems on ships, but in the 1960s it moved towards installing sprinkler systems. In 1970 it withdrew from ventilation completely and started to manufacture its own sprinklers. In 1984 the company moved to Glamsbjerg and in 1988 it was acquired by Angus Fire.
