Stavangerflint AS started production of pottery tableware for households and for the professional market in stavanger, Norway in 1949 under the name of Stavanger Fajansefabrikk A/s.
Stavanger Fajansefabrikk aimed from the start for a clay mixture and manufacturing process which was to be marketed as Stavangerflint, based on a recipe developed by Josiah Wedgwood in England around 1750. This was a marketable name which had the aim of presenting the factory's products as strong and durable earthenware.
On 16 April 1952 Stavanger Fajansefabrikk A.s. changed its name to Stavangerflint AS. By adding the word flint to the company name, the quality angle of the products would be enhanced.
In 1968 Stavangerflint AS merged with its competitor Figgjo Fajanse AS. Stavangerflint continued as a branch of Figgjo Fajanse - Stavangerflint AS.
Thirty years after Stavangerflint had started production and quickly developed into a showcase manufacturing plant, it was closed down. In 1979 the properties in Stavanger were sold. All production was transferred to Figgio and the business changed its name from Figgjo Fajanse – Stavangerflint A/S to Figgio AS
