History 3

Strömsbruk’s history 3

Right after WWII the English paper manufacturer Wiggin Teap looked for a Scandinavian supplier of photo paper base. The excellent quality produced in Strömsbruk fit the bill and a new era dawned.

Within a few years the company supplied 40% of the European demand and as much as 15% of the world’s total need. Products from companies such as Kodak, Agfa, Fuji and Ilford contained paper from Strömsbruk.

The high quality and the niche in the photo paper market kept the company alive and well through otherwise hard times in the industry.

Strömsbruk was not only a source of pride for Fabian Lundqvist, management and workers, but a name synonymous with quality all over the world.
