About the site

The Centre for Business History in Stockholm has produced this historical website for Clas Ohlson AB (PUBL). The Centre for Business History is one of the world’s leading business archives, documenting thousands of Swedish companies’ histories on behalf of their owners and management.

This site was launched in February 2018, as a part of Clas Ohlson’s centennial celebrations. The site draws upon all of the Clas Ohlson-catalogues that have been published over the years, and that you can find digitized on this site. The site also builds on research that the Centre for Business History has done in the Clas Ohlson archives and museum in Insjön, Sweden. All articles have been reviewed for historical accuracy by the Centre for Business History and Clas Ohlson, but if you still find errors, please let us know at 100@clasohlson.com.
