Bryn Aarflot´s history
During the first years after the Second World War, many new products appeared on the Norwegian market. There was a general feeling of optimism, and prospects for business were promising. Engineers Tom Bryn and Harald Aarflot therefore had the best outlooks for establishing their own firm. They both had many years of experience as consultants within intellectual property rights before establishing the firm Bryn & Aarflot A/S in 1947. In 1962, Bryn & Aarflot was reorganized into a share-holder company, and in 1998 it was transformed into a partner managed limited company. In 2002, the company name was changed to Bryn Aarflot AS, and our new logo was introduced.
