SØRENSEN SINCE 1942
At the beginning of the last century, P. Møller established himself in Thisted as a merchant in dairy produce and cheese wholesale and retail.
At that time, Søren Sørensen was the manager of the dairy in Fannerup, Djursland. Then, in 1919, he bought the company Thisted Mælkeforsyning (milk supply) which he managed for a couple of years, after which time P. Møller offered him the position of accountant and manager of his business.
Søren Sørensen sold the dairy and started working for P. Møller on the first of November 1921. Then, the company consisted of a shop and an office situated in Jernbanegade 5 and a cheese warehouse as well as a warehouse for dairy produce on Mellemgade.
On the first of May 1930, P. Møller rented some of the premises of the then Thisted Uldspinderi (wool spinning mill) on Østergade and Hjultorv at an annual rent of DKK 1,200. Thus, compared to the situation of those days, he had a fairly decent organization with a cheese warehouse and service on the ground floor and a warehouse for dairy products on the fourth floor.
Fortunately, the factory building was provided with a goods lift which was not very common in those days.
The office and the business continued as they were on Jernbanegade, managed by Søren Sørensen whereas P. Møller visited the dairies to buy cheese and sell dairy produce because in those days, these activities were naturally connected.
On the first of November, Søren Sørensen took over ”Ost en gros og Mejeriartikler” (wholesale of cheese and dairy produce), rented the used premises in the wool spinning mill and converted these premises to an office. Hence, the business was run under the name of ”P. Møller’s Eftf v/ S. Sørensen”.
In those days, the delivery of goods took place by means of carriage, barrow and bike in the town. Out of town, customers were served by means of delivery men and by rail.
At that time, the County of Thisted had 40 dairies which formed the basis of the dairy produce customers. Among those dairies, only two produced cheese and a few skimmed-milk and 10 per cent cheeses during the summer and only for the suppliers who would also have to produce the milk required. Therefore, there was also delivery of goods to the dairies on Funen and the remainder of Jutland from where the company purchased cheese.
In December, the stock of dairy produce at Thisted Uldspinderi was destroyed by fire. Thus, quite a few problems emerged due to almost every sort of merchandise being short-rationed. Therefore, the stock consisted mainly of goods purchased through the purchase licenses of the dairies.
Thus, it was necessary to frequently apply to ”Varedirektoratet” (the directorate for goods) for replacement for the produce destroyed. Other premises were rented elsewhere in the town to replace the ones destroyed by the fire.
On the first of July, the company changed its address to Gasværksvej 15, where the premises had been commandeered by the German Wehrmacht during the war.
The company acquired its first truck for delivery of goods – partly as a platform truck and partly as a sales truck equipped with a detachable container. The price for this marvel was DKK 13,000. Peter Sørensen was hired as a driver/salesman and would visit the retailers every fortnight with a view to selling cheese.
The second generation, Niels Sørensen, was authorized to sign for the company.
The premises on Gasværksvej became too small and the company bought the address Strandgade 5 (then the grocery of Th. Christensen). On these premises, the company established itself in the restored warehouse.
The dairies started collecting the milk by means of tankers, and a need for farm tanks, farm cooling tanks and fodder vans emerged. A co-operation was established with Hillerslev Beholderfabrik (a container factory) which produced these products. The products were sold until the market was saturated. Today, more than 25 years later, many milk cooling tanks are still used.
The company continued to co-operate with Hillerslev Beholderfabrik and produced quite a few silo tanks and milk tankers.
A branch with two employees was established in Vendsyssel at the request of several dairies.
In Thisted, the cheese wholesale business was closed in order to utilize the cheese warehouse for the dairy produce now requiring more and more space.
The third generation entered into the company with Peter Sørensen being employed as a salesman and consultant.
By now, the space and access situation on Strandgade became unacceptable and the company’s present domicile on Tigervej was built.
Michael Sørensen was hired to take over accounts and finances.
The company was converted into a partnership and purchased its first computer system.
A consultant was hired to attend to the service of the dairy customers in the regions of Funen and South Jutland.
Growing sales to the industrial sector made it necessary for the company to hire a sales manager to provide the service for existing customers and to look for new customers and new markets.
The generational change was completed. Niels Sørensen (second generation) sold the company to his sons Peter and Michael.
With the growing assortment and number of customers the company was forced to buy the neighbor buildings which included a warehouse.
In December Peter’s son Simon Sørensen (4th gen.) is hired and starts as a sales man visiting existing customers for a start and later on where to find new business areas.
Michael and Peter Sørensen (3rd gen) sells 20 % of the company to their sons Søren and Simon.
Since 1942 …
The market and the company have undergone thorough changes. In spite of the fact that there were only approximately 1,700 dairies in those days and less than fifty today, the company still managed to keep going.
With a wide range of articles, an excellent service level and, not least, a rotational, regional delivery by the company’s vans we have managed to get ourselves a lot of new customers within the rest of the industry such as swimming pools, heating plants, galvanization firms and textile dyeworks.
Today, the company has its own drawing facilities by means of which chemicals are drawn to cans and pallet tanks, respectively.
With a view to logistics, considerable changes have occurred meaning that earlier, the company only delivered from its own warehouse.
Now, the goods are brought directly from the place of production to the customers as a daily routine.
These deliveries do not only take place from Danish producers but also from producers abroad with whom the company deals directly.
