Jotun: a leading international paints supplier

Founded in Sandefjord, a seaside town in the south-east of Norway, the marine industry has been an important part of Jotun´s history from its beginnings more than 90 years ago.  The whaling fleets based in Sandefjord and surrounding towns were important early customers, and gave founder, Odd Gleditsch Sr. a foundation to build from.  With a focus on innovation and longstanding customer relationships, Jotun continued to grow both in Norway and internationally.
Today, Jotun supplies decorative paints and marine, protective and powder coatings.  It has 40 production facilities, 64 companies and is represented in more than 100 countries around the world.
