Our story

The story of Clas Ohlson began back in 1918, when Mr. Clas Ohlson from the small Swedish town of Insjön decided to see solutions rather than problems, and started selling things that made day to day easier.

Our passion for smart products is evident in everything we do. This is a heritage from our founder. Our genuine interest in reliable and clever products is a reason why we have been successful every year since the start.

Our company culture is distinguished by the unique Clas Ohlson spirit, which is characterised by responsibility, team spirit, mutual respect and an open exchange of thoughts and ideas. We care about customers, employees and the community as a whole. Sustainable development and CSR work is fundamental to the Clas Ohlson business. Low staff turnover, excellent ratings in employee surveys and award-winning customer service are all a result of our founder’s philosophy.
