About us

With more than 2,100 employees and an annual revenue of around 4.1 billion Danish kroner in Denmark and abroad, Arkil is one of Denmark's largest contracting companies. Arkil was founded in 1941, in Haderslev, Denmark.

Today the company is Denmark's third-largest contracting company and carries out large-scale infrastructure projects in Denmark and Northern Europe. We build bridges throughout Denmark for clients such as the Danish Road Directorate and Banedanmark, and we manage public works projects, construct harbours and foundations, install large-scale cable projects, and build and maintain large motorways.

We manage all types of environmental remediation projects and lay asphalt on both municipal and state roads. We also have a strong market presence in the area of road maintenance, and we are a pioneering private road service provider.

With 80 years of experience, Arkil is a professional, highly qualified and often preferred partner for large public and private developers and consultants in Denmark. The control and management of the firm has remained in the hands of the Arkil family for three generations. 

Mission, vision and values

Arkil builds the future, and our motto is "Quality on time".

We build the infrastructure of tomorrow. Arkil constructs bridges, lays cables and creates connections. We remediate contaminated soil, build sewers and help create a cleaner environment. We build from the ground up, lay foundations, construct harbours, produce asphalt and pave the way forward. We care for the road when it has been built and maintain its high level of quality.

Arkil strives to employ professional, talented and innovative people who possess a high level of trustworthiness and integrity.

At the same time, an essential part of our everyday work is to act with care, consideration and risk awareness.
