Dansk Automobil Byggeri (DAB) built buses and trucks in Silkeborg, a small town in Denmark from 1912 to 2003.

They produced for the local market and sold a few buses to Poland and Sweden. In the twenties they had a license from the German NAG. They acquired a license from BÜSSING when they took over NAG so the first enameled DAB emblem was in the NAG style (below).
