In 1971, Bo Hilleberg, a professional forester, founded his own company, Hilleberg AB. That same year, Bo met Renate Neuner. Their marriage was the final, necessary ingredient in the mix that has become Hilleberg the Tentmaker. Renate took charge of the sewing while Bo handled design and sales, and with their combined efforts, the company flourished. Today, family and business are still inextricably linked.
Hilleberg strive to make the most functional yet simplest to use products they can; to build them so they last a long time; to make sure that they work well for what they are designed to do; and to have the capability to repair their tents when necessary. They choose materials that will fullfill their standards without compromise, but whose production has as little harmful effect as possible. They endeavour to foster long-term relationships, built on integrity, with their suppliers, retailers, and customers. They ensure that all those who work for them have clean, safe working conditions, and are treated fairly and with respect. And they talk honestly about their products and how to use them.
Open Air are proud to be one of the select group of shops in the UK to have Hilleberg tents. We have stocked a range of Hilleberg tents, and other outdoor products, for over 30 years and in that time have witnessed their dedication to quality and their desire to create some of the best lightweight tents on the planet.
SPECIAL ORDERS: We have deliveries from Hilleberg regularly throughout the year and are more than happy to order in Hilleberg products that we don't usually hold in stock.
