Nilörngruppen

Adding value to brands

Nilörn is one of Europe's leading label and branding companies in the fashion and apparel industry. The company adds value to trademarks through branding and design of labels, packaging etc. Nilörn delivers 1.5+ billion labels per year. In 2017 sales amounted to SEK 680m with an adjusted EBIT margin of 12.7%. The shares are listed on OMX Small Cap since 2018.

Key strengths are its long-established know-how, worldwide partner network and logistic system. This setup provides opportunities to gain market share. Increased geographical presence and bolt-on acquisitions. Currently, e-commerce seems to require additional investments in brand profiling, which strongly benefits companies like Nilörn.

General downturn in the apparel industry, tougher environment for the fashion industry's middle-segment customers, price pressure.
