Our story

Norcolour was founded back in 1991 and production was started in the small coastal village of Skjeberg (Norway). With our founders radiating together from Norway, Sweden and Finland, Norcolour has been a cross-Nordic company from day one. Just a few years later, the second production site was established in Parainen (Finland). Since those days both our customers business and ours has developed quite a lot. But our basic mission remains the same – to provide the best possible colour tools and related services to our valued customers.

Taking care of our employees


We are blessed to have a great staff. We think everyone at the workplace should enjoy working together and contribute to uphold the great team spirit.

Healthy working conditions

We think good and healthy indoor air quality, lightning, ergonomics and general cleanliness are of great importance, no explanations needed.


Work at Norcolour often leads to long careers. Still we are happy to recruit new colleagues both old and young, who want to try it out to see if the colour card business could be their thing.
