A short historical film about Tronrud Engineering and its beginning.  

Our history

1977 - Founding of Tronrud Engineering

1977 - Founding of Tronrud Engineering

Tronrud Engineering was founded by Ola Tronrud in a workshop located on the ground floor of his house, in a residential area in Ringerike County (Norway).

For 7 years, Tronrud Engineering remained a one-man- business, and the customers were Norwegian factories and companies such as Raufoss, Jordan, Stabburet and Grorud Jernvare.

1984 - Expansion of Tronrud Engineering

1984 - Expansion of Tronrud Engineering

Ola Tronrud bought a new property in Hole (the neighbor county) and relocated the company to a brand-new factory building.

From then on, expansion became the rule! Tronrud Engineering was located in Hole from 1984 to 1999, and during this period the factory went through seven major building expansions. In the end, the factory was about to outgrow the property. 

1999 - New property at Eggemoen

1999 - New property at Eggemoen

Ola Tronrud bought an industrial property at Eggemoen Airport, back in Ringerike county.

The seller was the local government, and the property included part of a runway from WWII and a vast forested plateau. The remaining part of the area was owned by the Norwegian Army.  When they closed down their activities in 2001, Ola Tronrud acquired their property as well, bit by bit.
