RASMUSSENSGRUPPEN AS’ (the Group) history starts in 1936. At that time the first company got set up by the former shipowner Einar Rasmussen. In the period after World War II, Rasmussengruppen built a significant business around international shipping. In addition to investing in conventional tank- and bulk shipping, the Group also started investing in niche products like shuttle tankers, offshore living platforms and service platforms. At its peak, the Group owned an advanced fleet with approximately 20 units.


In the period from 1997-2003 the Group went through a strategic shift and changed its field of business to include financial investments, real estate development and international shipping.

Real estate is done through the fully owned subsidiary, AVANTOR AS. The Groups investments within shipping is concentrated around a strategic ownership of stocks in the Danish shipping company “Dampskibsselskapet NORDEN A/S”.

Today, the Groups financial investments are mainly concentrated about stocks in solid quality companies with satisfying income and moderate gearing.n
