Craftmanship through generations.
The history of Lundhs started more than 100 years ago when Alfred Lundh came from Sweden to Norway to run one of the biggest quarrying companies at that time. In 1962, Alfred’s grandson, Thor Lundh, decided to start his own quarrying company – Lundhs. Throughout this time, innovation has been essential for Lundhs. The areas of use for natural stone have changed a lot. The ways of extracting have changed completely. Lundhs has always been at the forefront of these changes.
Today the company is still family owned and Thor’s grandson, Thor-Anders Lundh Haakestad, is the CEO. He is continuing the proud quarrying traditions with the same passion for quality and high precision.
