Let's grow, together

With a strategy to lead and consolidate our industry, great strides have already been made. We are a business on a growth trajectory. We have grown rapidly organically and through several strategic and value-adding acquisitions. Over recent years, we have more than tripled our revenue and doubled our distribution network as well as employee headcount and business volume.

We started in the Nordic countries and continued our journey into Germany and Austria, where we have built on our proven record of collaboration and success by utilising the best from all our markets.

Our growth journey continues, and we are always looking for highly skilled and dedicated professionals who can help us reach our goal of building our future by helping others build theirs. Working with us, you will be part of a leading company with a strong legacy on a fantastic journey.
