Mannaz was originally called DIEU, which in French means “God”. The religiously-named name, however, prevented the growth for our international business, and in 2008, we changed name to “Mannaz”. The meaning of the new name is “human” on the urnordical and emphasizes our human-focused value set. By the way then there was no divine background for the original name. DIEU was an abbreviation for Danske Ingeniørers Efteruddannelse..
