Established in 1898 by Johan August Samuelson as a way of using the waste from a sawmill on the site. During the 1970s Alsterfors, Flygfors, Strömbergshyttan, and Gullaskruf were acquired by Orrefors and within a few years were closed down. In 1990 Orrefors also acquired Kosta Boda and today Orrefors Kosta Boda comprises the following glassworks: Orrefors, Sandvik, Kosta Boda and Äfors, as well as SEA which is a subsidiary.
