Worldwide from the kitchen table
Malmsten AB was founded 1974 by Tommy and Margareta Malmsten. With his roots in competitive swimming, both as an active swimmer and as a Swedish national coach, Tommy had a good intuition for products needed in the swimming industry. The company really started around the kitchen table, where the whole family was involved in assembling swimming goggles, one of our first successful products.
In 1975, the product range was expanded and the Malmsten racing lane lines were manufactured in Hörby, Sweden. The first few years, Tommy and Margareta managed the assembling, sales and all administration by themselves and the inventory as well as the office was located in their home.
Now our broad product range covers almost everything needed for construction, renovation or managing a swimming pool. Malmsten is both a manufacturing as well as a trading company. Most products that we manufacture are done locally or in the vicinity.
In Sweden our customers are municipalities, construction companies, swimming pools and swimming clubs. About fifty percent of our total turnover comes from export sales.
Our prestige product is still the Malmsten racing lane lines, which often are seen in swimming pools during the major international swimming competitions such as the Olympic Games, World and European Championships.
Another Malmsten product with international success is the Swedish Goggles which have been used since the 1970's by the best elite swimmers worldwide.
