Interaction between man and nature has its unique prerequisites wherever you are. In our case, the inspiration we get from our origin runs deep. The blue sea. The sun that never sets in the summer, and barely rises during winter. And the mountains, known to us locals as the keel. The way they fall steeply into the fjords is nothing less than spectacular. Add to this the wind and the cool climate, and you get drama. The drama that is Norway inspires us in what we do, and how we do it.
In 1970, Sto-Nor Industri AS began as a small operation based in Halden, Norway. As a sub-contractor to the textile and clothing industry we maintained a focus on our core values and pushed to become a major supplier of safety solutions to the garment industry. After 40 years, Sto-Nor has changed its name to Loxy and turned into a truly global operation with a sales organisation around the globe and production facilities in Norway, Sweden, Poland, Shanghai and the US.
