The book describes the Aarsleff Group’s development since 1947. Today, the company is one of Denmark’s largest contracting companies and has strong international branches. The company’s history is deeply intermingled with the history of Aarhus. The richly illustrated publication puts the company in a societal and sectoral context with focus on Aarsleff’s values and business model. The book describes how Aarsleff’s development has gone hand in hand with the extensive changes of society, especially within infrastructure and energy. The book also sets out where Aarsleff is today – as a Group and in the individual segment interfaces – and points out some of the future perspectives.
