During the 1950s, in Leiria (central Portugal), António Vieira Rodrigues started earthwork and earth-moving operations. These quickly expanded to public works.

This is how, in 1974, the company "Construtora do Lena" was founded and from this, the most recent history of the group began. In 1998, based on growth in construction, diversification of its activities began and the Lena Group was formally established.

In the same year, internationalization also began, first to Brazil, so that today, the group has companies spread across 3 continents (Europe, America and Africa).

From 2010, it underwent a thorough restructuring process including implementing a new governance model.

In 2018, market conditions and opportunities, especially felt in Portugal, led this group to change its name and image to now be called NOV Group..
