The Detmold Group was formed by Colin Detmold, who started C.P. Detmold Pty Ltd in 1948. The company grew rapidly, manufacturing toilet rolls and other paper products in a small factory in Flinders Street, Adelaide. In 1955, the company moved to a new location in Brompton and in 1970 these premises were acquired by the Government. The Detmold Group then moved to where it is currently headquartered at 45 Chief Street, Brompton, South Australia. 

The Group then expanded into other states of Australia, with an extensive product range and offerings similar to those offered today. In 1984 the Group expanded into Singapore, with a factory established to support the needs of McDonalds in the region.
