Hilleberg is a family-owned company with 40 years of experience in manufacturing lightweight, all-season tents of the highest quality.
In 1971, Bo Hilleberg, a professional forester, founded his own company, Hilleberg AB. That same year, while on a ski vacation in the Austrian Tyrol, Bo met Renate Neuner. After a couple of years, the two had fallen in love, married, and she had moved with him to Stockholm, Sweden. Their marriage was the final, necessary ingredient in the mix that has become Hilleberg the Tentmaker.
An avid, lifelong outdoorsman, Bo envisioned a tent that had an outer and inner tent that pitched together, simultaneously – but he didn’t have the necessary sewing skills. Renate did. She took charge of the sewing while Bo handled design and sales, a division of labor that has served the couple – and company – admirably ever since.
