About us

Who we are

In 1948, Arne Lydmar had a great idea on a market that saw the need for clever storage solutions. That was the start of Elfa. Over 70 years later, we still keep that very idea close at heart, to create space in everyday life with ingenious storage solutions. That is what we do, embracing the challenges of everyday life by creating clever solutions for big and small storage needs. The company is since 1999 owned by The Container Store, the USA’s largest storage products retail chain. The Container Store is listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Elfa has three factories and seven sales companies in Europe. The group reported turnover of approximately 1 161 MSEK in the 2021 fiscal year and by the end of fiscal year 2021 the group had 431 employees.
