At Arbesko, we have been making shoes since 1839.  What started as one of Sweden’s first shoe wholesalers is now a company with sales both in and outside the Nordics. Production is based in Sweden’s only shoe factory – Arbesko Skofabrik - where we still today develop quality products for people who need to stay safe and comfortable in their working life. Since 2017, Arbesko is owned by the Swedish company Bergman & Beving.

We're driven by inceasing inquisitiveness and a desire to create something new. We are also driven by a desire to develop the tradition we are carrying on. After all, this company has been in the same family for 180 years! The fact that we were first and are still here is clear proof that our values, our way of working and our inquisitiveness result in safety and occupational footwear that always meets, and very often exceeds, our customers’ requirements and expectations. Another driving force for us as a Swedish company lies in developing Swedish products and demonstrating that we can compete in an international arena. 

Our decision to carry out our research, development and production in Sweden was a very conscious choice. This is where the experience and knowledge we need comes from. Moreover, thanks to many years of industrial health and safety legislation, the Swedish market places the highest conceivable requirements on us and our products. This raises us and our quality even higher.

Bergman & Beving owns and develop companies and businesses that develop, market and sell strong brands to professional users within industry and construction – currently primarily in the Nordics, Baltics and Poland. Our vision is to be the market leader in northern Europe. Bergman & Beving wants to be the place where successful product companies are able to take the next step towards becoming the leading brands in their categories. Currently, the group has 15 brands, approximately 1 000 employees and an annual turnover of approximately SEK 3.8 billion. Bergman & Beving was founded in 1906 and is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.
