The A.P. Moller – Maersk Group is a worldwide conglomerate. We operate in some 130 countries and have a workforce of some 115,000 employees. In addition to owning one of the world’s largest shipping companies, we’re involved in a wide range of activities in the energy, logistics, retail and manufacturing industries.
For more than 100 years, our deeply held values have governed the way we deal with our employees, customers, and society in general. Our employees may come from every corner of the world, and we may work in many fields and business areas, yet we all share the same set of basic values.
Our Group was founded by Arnold Peter Møller in 1904. Following Arnold Peter Møller’s death in 1965, his son, Mærsk Mc-Kinney Møller, assumed leadership of the group, which – thanks to initiative, foresight and enterprise – has grown into a major international business.
