Create - manage - innovate

Ever since we launched our first paddle steamer in 1855, we have created, managed and developed values. And it's these values, together with our companies, our determination and our approach that has formed parts of our national industrial and cultural history.

As a family-owned business we believe in generating shared values and economic growth through long-term commitment and innovation. We believe in a sustainable mindset where we always focus on opportunities and give people- and technology time and space to flourish. This is the core of what we do. This is what DSD is all about.
