The company Sivilingeniør Gisle Krigsvoll AS was established by Gisle Krigsvoll in Trondheim in 1972. Initially, the activity was based on selling air-raid shelter equipment and other sanitary related products.
We started importing products from Italy in the beginning of the 1980s. We started with compressors and welding machines for DIY and professional use. The product range has gradually widened extensively with ever new product groups. Currently, our product range contains more than 10 000 articles.
The company moved to new premises at Flatåsen Industrial Estate, appr. 5 miles (8 km) south of the centre of Trondheim.
We bought the Swedish wholesalers, BVA Maskin AB, during the autumn of 1998. The Swedish company was mainly selling low value DIY tools to distributors across Sweden. Their market share has increased after the acquisition, and they currently have the same product range as in Norway. Subsequent to the acquisition, their company name has also changed to Gisle Krigsvoll AB, with their head office in Halmstad.
We moved to our new site in Industriveien 61 in Heimdal, Trondheim, in January 2000, where our distribution centre for Norway and Sweden is currently located.
Our company is currently an importer/wholesaler of machines and tools for organised sales via distributors to consumers and professionals.
