138 years in business

The history of Aarslev Polymere Industri A/S dates back more than 135 years to when the carpenter R. Nielsen founded his woodwork factory in 1878.

Until the middle of the 20th century the production was based on wood – from lolly sticks to wooden toys and to wooden shoe heels.

In the 1950´s, as the spread of synthetic materials increased, the production switched over to plastic shoe components.
