Nanso Group – Leader in the Clothing Industry since 1921
Nanso was founded in 1921 as a dyehouse. Throughout the years, it has developed into the second largest clothing industry company in Finland. Nanso started its production with the manufacture of women's cotton undershirts and has since knitted men's underwear textiles, durable cotton socks as well as popular T-shirts and nightwear.
Nanso has come a long way. This year, the company celebrates its 90th anniversary. The operations have been developed extensively in recent years. In 2001, Nanso purchased the tricot production of Finnwear. After the merger of Vogue Group Oy and VG Production Oy with Nanso at the turn of the year, the group assumed the name Nanso Group Oy. Nanso's product potfolio has developed along with the company. Currently Nanso holds the clothing brands Nanso, Black Horse and Finnwear and the pantyhose and sock labels Vogue, Norlyn, Amar, Finnwear and KS-Socks.
Nanso Group's headquarters and main production facilities are located in Nokia. The company has production units also in Tornio and Tallinn. In August 2007, Nanso Group launched its new logistics centre in Hämeenlinna, which is the largest and most up-to-date clothing industry logistics facility in the Nordic countries.
