History

How did it all start? In 1950, Roger Störling founded the family business ‘AB Sportsbeklädnad Urheiluvaatetus Oy’, initially specialising in jogging wear. The earliest products were made in the kitchen of an old farmhouse in Kokkola on the west coast of Finland. The company acquired its first welding machines in 1953 and broadened its product range into the area of waterproof rainwear. Three years later the company moved into a new building in Kokkola’s city centre, where industrial-scale production commenced.
