A/S Helle Fabrikker was established in the early 1930's in response to hard times and the depression. The unemployed brothers Steinar and Sigmund Helle started making farming tools and other implements in the forge of their father's farm.
For the next 25 years, cutlery became the main product, but since the mid 1970's, sports knives and forged knives for silver cutlery have accounted for most of the production base.
A/S Helle fabrikker is a typical cornerstone business in rural Norway. The village of Holmedal has only 500 inhabitants, whilst the employment catchment area of the business covers a population of 2000. Despite the many challenges this poses, it is counterbalanced by the advantages of a stable, skilled and positive workforce possessing qualities which are hard to find in larger communities.
This is one of many reasons why we look forward to further development with optimism in the same tradition that has distinguished our business throughout its almost 70 year history .
