DVA GROUP
COMPANY HISTORY:
1968 - 2018

1968

The history of the DVA Group began in 1968, when the shipbroker Detlef von Appen founded his own shipping company to provide transportation services for German traders and exporters.

1972

Horst Damm joined the company in 1972 and began the steel trading business with the Southeast Asia region. In the years that followed, the company continued its steady growth and successfully developed new markets.

1983

The operation was split into independent legal entities that would become known as Appenship and Appentrade.

1993

In 1993, DVA began trading in agrochemical and biological products, which led to the establishment of subsidiaries, representative offices and partnerships in South America, China and India following the main trading routes.

1998

DVA continued to grow and develop new business areas. In 1998, we began trading in food additives, pharmaceutical raw materials and veterinary products.

2004

In 2004, DVA began with the distribution of engineering plastics, the group’s first sales activity in the German market.
After many successful years of business, the shareholders parted ways and the Group stepped out of the shipping business.

2007

In 2007, the Group’s commercial activities were split into three core areas:
1.DVA AGRO - Worldwide trade, production and distribution of crop protection products.
2. DVA PLASTICS - European distribution of engineering plastics.
3. DVA Health & Nutrition - Worldwide trade, production and distribution of pharmaceutical raw materials and food additives.

2014

DVA Health & Nutrition acquires a production unit for texturizing compounds near Nuremberg to intensify support its growth ambition in the European food market.

SINCE 2014

Since then, the DVA Group has continually developed new markets, opened subsidiaries and branch offices and made extensive investments in research and innovation to guarantee its customers maximum flexibility, independence and competitiveness.

TODAY

With our more than 350 employees at 20 locations in 13 countries, the DVA Group has developed into a true global player. Our integrated services in the areas of trade and product development have made us a strong partner for our customer in most parts of the world.
