In 1936, 41-year-old Harald Aars Møller founded Strømmen Auto and lay the foundation for what has grown over the past 77 years into one of Northern Europe’s leading car groups with 3,600 employees. MøllerGruppen’s core operations are the import, sales and service of three strong car brands: Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda.
The Group also has a significant real estate portfolio totaling 325,000 m2, of which a large portion is related to car import and dealer operations in Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. MøllerGruppen is currently expanding its real estate investment to include real estate that is not related to car operations. The ambition is to double the real estate portfolio over the next few years.
MøllerGruppen’s goal is to create value for owners, customers, employees and partners.
Since Harald Aars Møller started his own car dealership in 1936 the core values, Honest and trustworthy – Proactive – Clear – Open-minded and caring, have played a central role. Over the years, MøllerGruppen has sold a total of 1.250.000 cars in Norway, Sweden and the Baltics. Today, MøllerGruppen has more than 750,000 customers who are taken care of by 63 dealers in five countries.
The business started with the contract to be the sole agent for Dodge in Norway. In 1946 the company changed its name to Harald A. Møller A/S, and the Volkswagen importer contract was signed in 1948. Audi became part of the Group in 1974, and Škoda in 1992. As the car operations grew, the Group expanded into car and commercial properties and financial investments.
The Group is still owned by the Møller family and the founder’s grandson, Harald Møller, is Chairman of the Board.
