Jotun’s founder, Odd Gleditsch sr., opens a combined colour/ship supply store in Sandefjord. It was a good time for the whaling industry, and Gleditsch sr. soon worked his way into the business of supplier to the whaling fleets in Sandefjord, Tønsberg, and Larvik.
He had a particular gift for creating enthusiasm among employees at all levels. He once said; “If I have a secret weapon, it is my ability to find able employees and to listen, and listen carefully, to their thoughts, suggestions and ideas.” Many people would say that it was this very way of thinking that created the able employees.
As sales to the whaling fleet increased, Gleditsch sr. saw the potential in manufacturing the paint himself. On 12th March 1926, Gleditsch sr. invited shareholders to subscribe to the new company. With a share capital of NOK 60 000, Jotun Kemiske Fabrik A/S was founded, with Odd Gleditsch sr. as managing director.
