Our history

SSG was founded in 1993 by Gunnar Andersen, Anders Kristensen and Kjeld Albrectsen as a Danish based provider of damage control services, which quickly grew to become one of the leading nationwide damage control providers in Denmark with approximately 300 employees in 2008. By 2010, SSG was the preferred supplier to several Danish insurance companies, and an additional business area, property services, was added to our offering. An important component of SSG´s business, the advanced proprietary IT-system SSG-5C, was implemented to enable customers and SSG´s employees to register and view data, resulting in a streamlined process with increased efficiency and improved utilisation of staff.In 2012, BWB Partners acquired SSG from Maj Invest and the original founders. Subsequently, during the same year, SSG entered the Norwegian market through strategic acquisitions of two Norwegian companies. In 2014, Sonny Nielsen stepped down as Chairman of the Board to assume the role of Group CEO, and SSG also appointed Uffe Iversen as Group CFO, thereby commencing the implementation of the company´s new strategy including the restoration of SSG´s core values by placing a greater emphasis on customer satisfaction, managing processes, and securing stable earnings in the future.

Between 2015 and 2017, SSG made a series of strategic acquisitions including Büring & Johansen and MicroClean and entered the Swedish market through the acquisition of 31 percent in the Swedish property services company Crendo, thereby establishing presence across Scandinavia. In 2017 and 2018, the Company acquired majority ownership of Crendo as the holdings increased from 31 to 93 percent of the shares, and SSG strengthened its market position in Sweden by acquiring selected parts of Corvara’s damage control operations.
