Company starts in 1855

The history of the company starts in 1855. We are running a mill being in operation in more than 160 years, going through good and bad periods, sun and rain, big changes in the society and two world wars.

The mill has survived because of the customer focus and the will and capability to change. We are a part of this history, and we are quite proud of it!

Represented by the old mills

The start of the company is still represented by the old mills powered by the waterfall.

Today they are a museum located next to the operative mill.

The waterfall is now used to produce renewable electrical energy used in the processing of pulse ingredients and the old mills are only in operation on special occasions.
