Our ambition is to become Scandinavia’s leading surfacing contractor
We aim to deliver walling, painting, tiling and flooring services that are far beyond the customer’s expectations. We want to be a leader in sustainability, and are keen to develop expertise and talent. We are proud of our local brands and relationships, but are also able to deliver on national framework agreements.
Proffesional craftsmanship locally and nation wide
Our roots are local, and we're incredibly proud of our local brands and long-standing relationships. These are built on trust, respect and a shared commitment to delivering high-quality craftsmanship. Yet our projects extend far beyond local areas. We have the capacity to sign and execute national contracts, showcasing our versatility and adaptability.
Our oldest company, C Kristoffersen & Sønn AS in Horton, was established in 1853. While it is the group’s oldest company, many of the companies within HG build on more than 50 years of tradition and experience.
Håndverksgruppen is more than a name. It represents the promise of quality, the commitment to sustainability, an arena for talent development, and above all, it's a testament to the power of shared ambition. Join us on our journey to redefine craft skills across Scandinavia.
