In 2003, CVC Funds led the public-to-private acquisition of DT Group (formerly Danske Traelast), previously quoted on the Copenhagen Stock Exchange. DT Group is the largest retailer and distributor of building materials in the Nordic region.
The group consists of six key divisions: Stark in Denmark, Beijer in Sweden, Neumann in Norway, Starkki in Finland, Silvan in Denmark and Sweden and DT Trade.
DT Group serves its customers through an established network of stores. Its customer base is broad, ranging from major contractors and builders to distributors. DT Group was sold to Wolseley in September 2006.
