Own production

The group has centralised all production at its modern factory within the Viared industrial park in Borås. The factory combines traditional production techniques with new, rational manufacturing methods. The production of wallpapers uses only water-based colours and adhesive, and our raw paper materials come from one of the most environmentally friendly paper mills in the world, with a scheme for the replanting of trees.
