History

Packline is a Norwegian roof box manufacturer based in Drammen. The company is part of the family-owned HTS Hans Torgersen & Sønn Group, which was founded in 1919. The group has its headquarters at Krøderen in the county of Buskerud and includes a number of well-known brands.

Roof box since the 70s

Packline’s history goes back to the 70s and the manufacture of luggage boxes and narrow ski boxes for cars under the Skiline brand in Strängnäs, Sweden.

The mother of all boxes

We launched a fibreglass roof box back in 1982, reckoned to be the first in the world. That is why we now proudly call Packline “The Mother of All Boxes”.

The Packline Original took off just two years later with a seminal design, setting the standard for what a roof box should look like.

And so it has continued, with various innovations and optimisations, right up to the present day.

Packline – innovation

Packline is one of the few manufacturers to use fibreglass in its boxes, with it being a relatively expensive material that requires a long production time. Nevertheless, we remain convinced that all the positive attributes of fibreglass are worth it.

We also focus on design, the environment and sensible, practical solutions, and as much integration as possible between roof box and car. This has led to a number of Packline innovations over the years.
