EXPEDO was founded in 1948 by the Swedish Unilever
group as a sourcing and purchasing company for the organisation's Scandinavian factories. The company
began to export packaging materials to the global market
during the 1960s. Following a management buy-out in
1989, EXPEDO has been privately owned and the company operates entirely independently.

Initially most products were sourced from Scandinavian
mills but EXPEDO has built up relationships with mills
throughout European producers of high-quality materials.
