It all began in 1900

Our company is known not only for its historical roots, but also for its ability to adapt.

Ever since Hønefoss Verktøifabrik – now HV Plast AS – was founded in 1900, our company has constantly adapted in order to meet the market’s ever-changing demands. At the beginning of the 20th century most of our clients came from the primary industries, but it did not take long before manufacturers became our main client group.
