Welcome to the world's largest candle factory! In the factory shop you can make a bargain and find rejects and discontinued products.

Lars Johan Hierta, the founder of Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, started Liljeholmen's Technical factory in Stockholm 1839. As the demand for candles grew, the Stockholm factory became too small. The Oskarshamn facory was opened in 1970 and is now the world's largest factory to specialise in the production of candles. Today more than 6,000 tons of candles are produced a year. In the factory shop you will find the latest products, discontinued products and rejects at discounted prices.
