Danish Army Specific: 1924 a 2 T Triangel truck was shipped to Citron, France in order to be equipped with a kegresse-drive. After a series of tests, further 2 trucks was shipped to France. At the same time a 3 T truck was equipped at the Triangel factory in Odense. In the period 1925 - 27 both types were tested out at the 6th. and 7th. artillery-regiment.
Historical: On the 26th of August 1918 the 3 car-manufacturers Thrige, Anglo Dane and Jan merged into "De forenede Automobilfabrikker" ("United Car Factories") and future production (trucks and busses only) was sold under the Triangel ("triangle") brand.
In the beginning engines from Danish Thrige, French Ballot and British White & Poppe were used, but production of a self-developed 4-cylinder 50 hp started in 1923. Later a 6-cylinder version was developed and a co-operation with Continental and Hercules in the United States was formed.
The company was a major supplier of specialised vehicles in the 1930s and 40s.
Besides the production of trucks and busses, the company represented foreign car factories like Fabrique Nationale, FIAT and Studebaker..
