Do you have what it takes to join us?
Our history goes back to 2009 when the young hunter and entrepreneur, Eirik Andersen, started out with a copper pipe, a piece of wire from an old bike, pieces of fabric and an old sewing machine. One thing led to another, and he refined the idea in his final thesis in cooperation with the Norwegian Armed Forces. He established Vorn Equipment in 2012 as the first prototype, VORN No. 1, started to take shape. Vorn means “defense” in the old Norse language.
Now we have offices in Stavanger, Norway, and in New York City. Our backpacks are patented in the US, China and Norway, with patents pending in the EU and Canada. Vorn’s backpacks can be found in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Switzerland, Austria and Svalbard. Svalbard is a great market for us since people need to carry weapons everywhere due to the polar bear population. In 2016 we are taking Vorn Equipment to the next level by launching our products in North-America, and we already have some marketing initiatives in place. We’re featured in season 2 of a show called “We Are Wild” which runs on WildTV, a Canadian hunting channel with 13-14 million viewers. We Are Wild is going to run 4 times a week for 26 weeks in 2016. We’re also working on similar deals with US based television channels.
In addition to this, we’re also launching our products in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand around the same time as the North American launch.
We’re an ambitious company, and our aggressive expansion strategy is based on the overwhelming amount of requests we’ve received from hunters all over the world. Our issues with limited production capacity has now been solved through proper funding, and we’re ready to join the big leagues in 2016.
