Once upon a time in Hillerstorp

Hillerstorp is located in the middle of the forests of Småland in southern Sweden. This is where Thule was founded in 1942 and where Thule launched the first roof racks 20 years later in 1962.

The heritage of Thule

Launching our Next Generation Roof Racks, we decided to celebrate our journey with a film taking us down Memory Lane. A film about the heritage and the DNA of our brand and our company, highlighting the passion of the people behind it all. The people from the Hillerstorp facility, where it all started back in 1942. The place where we produced our first roof racks back in 1962. The very place where you find us today – and where we will continue to produce our roof racks for many years to come.
