Holmberg Brands Oy

Our company

Holmberg Brands is a company specialised in the design, import, and retail of clothing items. In addition to garments, we produce and import shoes, bags, and interior design products. The most important cornerstones of our operation are expertise, speed, and flexibility. Our strengths are our extensive experience in the field and genuine will to serve our customers.

The history of our company began in Naantali in 1993, when Arne and Mirja Holmberg decided to become a partner for their customers and make top-quality, well-sized, and reasonably priced products available to the consumers. This marked the start for A&M Holmberg Oy, which later became Markkinointi Holmberg Oy, and is currently known as Holmberg Brands.

In 2017, the Finnish private equity company Folmer Management Oy became the majority owner of Holmberg Brands, with the aim of developing and expanding the company in collaboration with its personnel.

Our selection includes a number of private labels, polished into complete concepts. In addition, we are the Finnish representative for several international top brands. We are also an innovative and reliable partner for our customers who want to design, product or import their own brands. We have the skill to combine global trends with perfect sizing to produce items that fit the customer in the best possible way.

Our most important individual distributors are large retail chains with stores all over Finland. We are also actively trading in the Nordic countries and the Baltic Sea region.

At Holmberg Brands, our customers have at their disposal the entire combined knowledge base that our skilled employees have of manufacturing products and collections and introducing them to the market. Our supplier network consists of reliable operators with a long history of collaborating with Holmberg Brands. We can provide our customers with collections in a manner that highlights competitiveness and security of supply, even in situations where agility and quick responses are of the essence.
