To make a long story short.

Norcospectra has experienced great success in Sweden, Norway and Poland. 

Norcospectra is the result of a merger between two companies, Norco from Norway and Spectra Collection from Sweden. The merger started in 2014 when both companies were acquired by Swedish private equity company SEB PE. The integration process  was finalised in January 2016 when the joint name Norcospectra and a new brand platform were launched.


Norco AS was established at Stranda, on the west coast of Norway in 1956. The company was one of the first providers of modular store furnishings. For the first 15 years, customers consisted exclusively of grocery chains. From the mid 80's, the company specialized in the non-food trade/ brand market which was an instant success. Norco experienced strong growth and quickly established its own design department in Oslo. As early as 1992, the first production plant was established in Poland. In 2006, the entire production, both wood and metal, was moved to Poland. Norco has experienced great success, both in Norway and in Poland, and was further strengthened by cooperation with Swedish Spectra Collection AB and ownership in SEB PE in 2014.

Through many years of experience and excellent service, the company has become a recognized turnkey supplier to the Norwegian retail market.

Spectra Collection was established in 1993 when Ica Inredningar was aquired from Ica Köpmannatjänst and changed its name to Spectra Collection. In 2005, Spectra moved the business to new and efficient premises adapted to high environmental demands in Ljungby, enabling efficient production and logistics. In 2007 Johan Thunholm was recruited as the new Managing Director of the Company. The Board of Directors and the Management established a new strategy to increase growth and raise profitability. In 2009 the manufacturing was concentrated to Ljungby, as a small manufacturing unit in Arlöv, Sweden, closed down. The decision was a step towards more efficient and concentrated operations to strengthen the competitiveness of the Company. Since 2010, the company has experienced strong growth with an increasing number of big international customers that require suppliers capable of managing bigger volumes delivered globally.

The merger with Norco in Norway has given Spectra Collection access to modern metal manufacturing as well as increased the capacity of its wood production in Poland.
