Gripland AB was founded in the early 80´s. From the beginning it was the old traditional Gusums Bruk who used Velcro as an complement to their zippers.

By the time that Gusums Bruk was cancelled the former productionmanager Arne and his wife Aino Nordlin bought the fasteners sales department. They managed the company for 13 years and then sold it to Cecilia and Stefan Kemle, who have managed and developed the company since 1996.

The last few years has had an explosion on the market for fasteners.
