Pergo invented the laminate floor in 1977 and today they are a flooring company with leading market positions in Europe and North America. Pergo develop and manufacture commercial grade flooring (laminate, wood and vinyl) of high quality and with unique and patented properties, for both home environments and public areas.
Pergo history goes back to 1977, when they revolutionized the (commercial) flooring industry by inventing the first laminate floor. The idea came from a brainstorming committee set up to suggest new applications for high-pressure laminate made by Perstorp, a leading Swedish chemical company. The idea became a product, evolved to a new division and eventually gave birth to a new company, Pergo.
