From two empty hands

In 1917, with two empty hands and a small boathouse in Aalesund, western Norway, Karl Sunde began repairing fishing nets. A few years later his brother Petter joined him. Ever since then, the company has been family driven.
Due to developments in the fishing industry, the company started to make plastic products, which developed into the production of expanded polystyrene (EPS) for a variety of uses. In the early years the company experienced several setbacks due to fire and fierce Norwegian weather conditions. But with indomitable optimism and enthusiastic employees they always managed to get the company back on track. Today, the Sunde Group is regarded as one of the leading players in the production and conversion of EPS based products in the European market.
