The history of Everslide

The EVERSLIDE Plastic Matting System for summer ski jumping was launched in 1984. It was originally developed and manufactured by a Finnish company called Kirkkala Oy, which specialised in producing polypropylene fibres for brushes used by street-cleaning vehicles. In 1991, C.E. Lindgren bought the Kirkkala business, and six years later decided to focus the entire fibre production operation on EVERSLIDE. Since then, C.E. Lindgren has become the market leader in this business, and more than half of the matted ski jumps worldwide are covered with EVERSLIDE Plastic Matting System.
