14 FEBRUARY 1947
Jensen was founded; at that time, its name was Jensen & Birkeland. In the beginning, chairs and sofas were its main products.
The first sprung mattress, named Svella, is launched.
The sofa-bed Siesta is launched.
The company name is changed from Jensen & Birkeland to Jensen & Co.
Jensen purchases Thors Fabrikker of Trondheim, a company that produces 5,000 mattresses every year.
At the beginning of the 1980s the decision was made to focus only on the production of beds.
The new factory at Sand, just outside Svelvik, begins production with 28 employees. The export of beds to Denmark starts.
Jensen takes a new step developing optimal sleep comfort, starting a close collaboration with physiotherapists.
Jensen Vital is launched, the first adjustable bed on the market. A couple of years later it is possible to purchase Jensen beds in Sweden, Finland and Iceland.
A revolution in sleep comfort is launched. The Jensen Original Zone System attracts considerable interest, from both consumers and other mattress producers.
Jensen is awarded a “Super Brand” in Norway.
Sleep comfort is further improved when the technically advanced Aloy® spring system is launched.
The innovative Jensen Exact Comfort Adjustment is launched, making it possible to adjust the firmness in the bed depending on your mood.
Today you will find Jensen in more than 20 countries – and it is still pushing the limits when it comes to sleep comfort.
