Services of DS Group

Many companies,
one group, one goal

From the idea to the product’s development to the time it is on the shelves, available online, or directly brought to people’s homes with next-day delivery – we take care of it. We act as a partner across all distribution channels. Some call it “services,” some call it “competence center.” We say: “That's what we call teamwork!”
