Did you know that all of the Swix wax that you have ever bought was made in Lillehammer, Norway? Yesterday, we took a private tour of the one and only Swix wax factory. After a five-minute drive from our apartments to the outskirts of town, we were amazed to see how small the factory was. However, they can produce 20,000 cans of kick wax and 10,000 tubes of klister in 8 hours. First we talked with the Swix product manager and asked him questions. Then he brought us to the production room and showed us the 3 different machines that make the hard wax, klister and glide wax. As we left, the manager gave us each 2 cans of kick wax and a pair of ski ties. THANK YOU SWIX!
