In 1949 Swix expanded by developing a line of glide wax for alpine skiing, and eventually in 1987 introduced a revolutionary wax for all disciplines called Cera F that certainly is the most successful single racing wax in ski history. As waxes continued their growth and development, Swix also bought the Norwegian Liljedahl Ski Pole factory in 1974 that was the largest manufacturer of cross-country poles in the world. Today, Swix is making approximately one million poles a year for alpine, cross-country, and exercise walking. In 1989 Swix added the Norheim outdoor and ski-clothing factory. Today the Swix apparel line also includes sport-underwear, gloves, hats, and bags.
Swix is now owned by Ferd AS of Norway and most wax manufacturing is done in Lillehammer.
Swix - a name you can trust.
