Company structure

Looking forward

Our Shared future

“Ever since the Group was involved in the textile industry in the early 1900s, we have managed to adapt to the changing circumstances surrounding us.

 

The Blystad Group today is a testament of creating value through longevity by embracing ingenuity.

 

Embracing ingenuity is about being willing to take the next step when others dare not. As a result, the Blystad Group is today a Nordic powerhouse with a global presence.

 

Longevity, on the other hand, is defined not by what happened in history, but by what happens next. Guided by our experience, we shape our future course together with our partners, colleagues and investment projects. All based on the same set of sound Norwegian family values with the local and global scene as our operating landscape.

 

We create value off our core values, combining industrial expertise with capital markets. We make every effort to be dynamic by cultivating opportunities, and solid by obtaining your trust as a partner.

 

Going into the next decade, we will continue our strive to be your trusted partner, colleague and teammate. Longevity will be created by our shared future.”
