The history of DS Gruppen


The history of DS Gruppen embodies creativity, enterprise, drive and vision. But above all it is a history of professionalism. Of never compromising our work ethics or quality. It is about creating continued growth based on a solid foundation of business acumen, customer service and competence.

The company’s story begins in 1969 when Svend Møller, a travelling fitter for Dronningborg Maskinfabrik, finds himself in Ireland, where during his stay, helps a local metalworker to make steel structures. The young Danish man is inspired and shortly after returning to Denmark, starts his own production of steel structures. He starts his enterprise using some space in a barn; loaned to him by his parents. But already within a year, he relocates his business to a newly built production building in Hobro.

It is the first major step on the road to success. The company develops step by step, milestone by milestone. A success story that includes expansions, acquisitions and new markets. A business that has gone on to become one of Denmark’s biggest and most robust construction groups operating in steel and concrete. And the family Møller Hansen continue to run the business, with the same values and professionalism it was founded on in 1969.
