Our History

Jofama was founded in Malung year 1926 by the entrepreneur Mr Niss Oskar Jonsson. The company was given the name JOFA, which means from Jonssons Factories. Year 1958 the Norwegian daughter company Jofano AS was founded, which was re-named to Jofama AS in 1998. Jofama AS is located in Kongsvinger, 70 km north of Oslo and 180 km west from the company base in Malung.

In 1973 the company who dealt with sport equipment and leather garments was separated in two parts.Volvo bought the sport division and kept the name JOFA, which still is a worldwide famous brand for hockey- and other sport equipment. Mr Jonsson kept the leather division and re-named it to JOFAMA (Jonssons FActories Malung).
