Norske Skogindustrier ASA or Norske Skog, which translates as Norwegian Forest Industries, is a Norwegian pulp and paper company based in Halden, Norway and established in 1962. The corporation is the world's largest producer of newspaper (newsprint) and magazine paper, with 18 mills around the world.
Norske Skog started up in 1962 with the construction of a paper mill at Skogn in Norway, with the plant opening in 1966 and a second paper machine in 1967. Half the capital for the project was issued by the Norwegian Forest Owners Association.
In 1972 Norske Skog started a cooperation with Follum Fabrikker in Hønefoss. By 1989 Norske Skog had acquired Follum Fabrikker and Union in Skien as well as Saugbrugsforeningen in Halden. With this Norske Skog controlled all the pulp and paper mills in Norway. Norske Skog is recognised as a world leader in the paper industry.
The goal is to deliver good return for shareholders. To reach this objective, the company has opted to be a low-cost producer, pursue profitable growth and focus on its core business, newsprint and magazine paper.
