History

The Nic. Christiansen Group was established in 1967. The group currently employs 630 people, who help the company to generate an annual turnover of more than DKK 6,4 billion.



Nic. Christiansen

Nicolai Theodor Christiansen was born in the town of Højer in the south west of Jutland in 1917. He quickly became know as Nic.

Times were hard when Nic. was a boy and he worked at an early age to help the family home. He quickly showed himself to be useful and imaginative and he had the ability to see the possibilities in most situations. This was a general philosophy that he held his entire lifetime and it was the spark that created the Nic. Christiansen Group in 1967, when he became the BMW import agent in Denmark. The company proved to be one of the most successful of its kind in Denmark.

Nic. Christiansen died in 2010 at the age of 93. The business is now owned by his daughter, Birthe Christiansen.
