Craftsmanship, quality and Norwegian design

Hjellegjerde has undergone many changes since it all began in 1941. Started as a small family company to a listed group with markets spread across three continents. Right from the start the emphasis was on supplying quality furniture with comfort and Norwegian design, based on good craftsmanship. Modern technology also came to be a vital part of production.

The factory

As with all success stories, there were reversals of fortune too. The company has had two fires, the largest of them in 1981. Half the factory – about 4,500 square metres – went up in flames. A whole life’s work was lost, but this didn’t stop the brothers. With the aid of a fantastic rescue operation from the employees, they managed to clear up after the fire. Just one month later production was under way again at Hjellegjerde and in 1983 a new and modern factory opened its doors, risen from the ruins of the old.
