Acquisition & Growth

The group brands include:

Kasten: started 1886 by Hjalmar Henrik Kasten who established a metal works company in Helsinki Finland. They manufactured their first shelves in 1951 and today they are market leaders in Finland.

Constructor: Originally founded as Høvik Verk in 1856, a glassworks at Høvik, Norway - part of Christiania Glasmagasinas.  Between 1970 - 2000, through mergers and aquisitions of Høvik Stål, Electrolux Constructor, Kasten, Krammer & Zeuten, ETH and MTH, it grew to become Scandinavia’s leading company within storage, archive and logistics solutions. The Constructor name was adopted in the late 1980s.

Dexion: formed in London UK in 1937 by 50-year-old Greek-Australian, Demetrius Comino. Comino developed the 'Dexion Slotted-Angle' (1947), which introduced the world to adjustable storage and would go on to blaze the trail for Dexion's purpose-built pallet racking and shelving systems. It became part of the Group in 1999.
