Our History

As a sub-contractor to the textile and clothing industry we maintained a focus on our core values and pushed to become a major supplier of safety solutions to the garment industry. After 40 years, Sto-Nor became LOXY and turned into a truly global operation with a sales organisation around the globe and production facilities in Norway, Sweden, Poland and China.

Sto-Nor Industri AS was founded by Loyd Nordli as a small operation based in Halden, Norway.
