Petter Nordli just moved to America and he brought his family’s business with him.

Nordli is part of the third generation in his family to work for Loxy, the performance clothing supply company his grandfather founded in a garage in Halden, Norway, in the 1970s. Now the company is opening its first production site in the U.S. in Columbus.

Loxy makes products that supplement high performance clothing. They produce high quality reflective and seam sealing tapes. But Nordli is here to expand Loxy’s newest business, screen-printing and logo production.

Loxy has taken over the old Langford Furniture building at the corner of Military and Bluecutt roads. Nordli said they have totally renovated the 6,000 square foot building and plan to start production next month.

Loxy will employ six people in Columbus. Nordli said he will be the only Norwegian working here.
