“Norwex invests in the USA with their products and consultants, but aren’t they are a Norwegian company? Isn’t it short for ‘Norwegian experience?'”
“I thought Norwex was made in China?”
“Norwex ships to me so fast, it must be local!”
If you’ve thought ALL of these things, you are correct! I promise I’m not playing 3 truths and a lie! As Norwex has grown, all of these statements have become true, and I am so proud that they have become local as Norwex invests in the USA with their expansions in Dallas, Texas. While we celebrate Norwex’s 26th birthday month, let me give you a brief recap of some of Norwex’s milestones.
1994– Founder Bjørn Nicolaisen is introduced to the incredible microfiber cloth and the Norwegian business starts.
1999- Norwex makes its way to North America through Canada.
2007– Norwex introduces a new microfiber with microsilver, now known as BacLock® technology.
2009– Norwex opens its own production facility in China to ensure quality and meet the growing demand for Norwex Microfiber. I was so fortunate to be part of the Senior Leadership Trip to China to see the facilities and meet our team there. Check out the video below to learn more:

I can’t wait to see what Norwex will do next as their story continues in the United States, and hope to see more and more homes drastically reduce chemical, paper, and plastic use because of Norwex’s impact!
