The story of TRETORN
TRETORN was founded in 1891 by Johan Dunker in Helsingborg, Sweden. At that time the factory was called Helsingborg Rubber Factory and manufactured tires. But then he hired his only 21-year-old son, Henry Dunker, as a salesman - and it was he who later took over and very successfully developed TRETORN to a major producer of rubber boots, rubber shoes, rainwear, the world's best tennis equipment etc.

Besides being an accomplished entrepreneur Henry Dunker also had a social engagement and offered ahead of his time his employees free health care, day care and kindergarten. That engagement created a solid foundation of good will among his employees and helped to ensure continued success. In 1892 TRETORN produced 39,000 pair of galoshes. Just two years later the number had risen to 209,000 pairs, and high and low in Sweden was wearing rubber boots from TREORN. In 1896 rubber boots from TRETORN was recognized as the best in Sweden, Denmark and Germany, and the production had now reached 1 million pairs per year.

In addition TRETORN manufactured rubber tubes, pedals, shoes and tennis equipment - and when Sweden's world famous tennis player Björn Borg, still considered one of the best ever, went on the tennis courts with TRETORN tennis balls, rackets and the newly developed "Nylite" luxury sports shoes, the success was for real. Nylite became fashion, and soon celebrities like Farah Fawcett and Jackie O. wore Nylite sports shoes from TRETORN. In 1980 the original sailor rubber boot "Skerry" became a classic, which starts another fashion trend in Europe.

For more than 120 years TRETORN has worked hard to earn their reputation of superior quality, functionality and innovative novelties. In the future TRETORN will continue to set the standard for rubber boots, shoes, tennis balls and outerwear that offers comfort beyond the ordinary.
