Svenska Krämfabriken was founded in Falun 2014 as a result of a merger between two small family businesses: the beauty care manufacturer Simplus and the brand owner RFM Brands.
The merger marked the start of a thrilling journey. In just over five years Svenska Krämfabriken grew from 15 to 120 employees, and the yearly turnover increased from 3 M€ in 2014 to 27 M€ in 2020. The company is still managed and owned by the original founders Johan Mattsson, Pär Borgersen, and Jesper Rönnbäck.
The acquisition of our new production facilities in Borlänge (former CCS) was an important milestone in the company’s pursuit to become the number one brand owner and contract manufacturer in Scandinavia. From 2020 the Borlänge factory is Svenska Krämfabriken’s main production site and R&D center.
