How Secoya became Orbit

The foundation of Orbit was laid out back in 2006, when Secoya was started as a web development company. We made websites, online shops, apps and custom applications. 

However in 2011 we started to develop what we today know as Orbit, and in 2013 we stopped making websites, shops and other applications.

Orbit Online is based in Aarhus, Denmark and is subject to a privat joint ownership between CEO René Dalsgaard Larsen and the employees of the company.

Orbit Online has been awarded a Bisnode AAA credit rating six years in a row from 2013 to 2019.
