The story about a company and a product with the same name “MULTI ELEMENT”
The idea for the product MULTI ELEMENT was born in 1963.
It was a time where the building markets were making serious changes with major innovations in all aspects of new building components. The demands for economical ways to enhance building speed and efficiency were placed on the fast track. With the main objective to stay up with other major advances in an ever-shrinking globe. From that spirit MULTI ELEMENT was born.
The idea was to produce insulated building elements in a cost-effective, continuous process. The structure of the elements was and is unique – a sandwich construction with a core of insulating polyurethane foam laminated with plasterboard on both sides. Based on the same unique basic construction, a series of roof and wall elements were developed in which construction wood is cast into the element for structural strength and possibly fixing of the cladding etc.
From 1963, The product MULTI ELEMENT was produced under the parent company NORGIPS AS. In 1971, the company MULTI ELEMENT AS was established as a separate company by Norgips owner, Walter Nilsen, and moved to a new industry building in Svelvik, in Norway
