OUR HISTORY

1993

Everything started back in 1993 with the dream of selling label printers, labels, handheld terminals and barcode scanners – in a yellow house with an apple orchard in Kløfta, Norway. At the time, the company was called Strekkodesystemer AS. Turnover in the first year was NOK 3.9 million, rising to NOK 8.9 million the following year (1994). As turnover increased, the product range and the number of employees both continued to grow steadily in the years that followed.

2001

In 2001, LexIT was founded as a separate company within the Strekkodesystemer Group, which previously consisted of Strekkodesystemer Maskin AS and Strekkodesystemer Etikett AS. The range of products was further expanded to include POS and retail products. The group changed its name to Lexit Group AS.

2002

To handle the demand for products and solutions in central Norway, the company needed a branch in this area, so a new regional office was opened in Trondheim in 2002.

2004 / 2008

To complete the product range, Lexit Group Sweden AB was founded in Frölunda outside Gothenburg in 2004 and with that, the company’s own label printing company was born. It didn’t take long before Lexit Group Sweden needed more space and larger premises, and by 2008 a new building was ready in Mölnlycke, Gothenburg, designed entirely according to the company’s specifications. The new premises were quickly filled with new printing presses and more staff to cope with the growing demand for labels.

2009 / 2012

The group’s Scandinavian presence was firmly established when Lexit Group Denmark ApS saw the light of day in 2009 with offices in Allerød/Copenhagen. In 2012, a new regional office was also established in Vejle, in southern Denmark.

2017

The high demand for labels in Norway and Sweden made it necessary to have more printing presses and more storage space in Mölnlycke / Gothenburg, so plans for an extension began. This resulted in doubling the production area, and the new building was completed in 2017.

2021

Today, Lexit is one of Scandinavia’s leading groups and a total supplier of data capture, RFID, POS/retail, product labelling, labels and software solutions – both in the form of modular solutions and integrated software for complex system solutions. The group has 140 employees and an annual turnover of over NOK 480 million.
