The history of fram^ dates back to the year 1893…

Fridtjof Nansen was a Norwegian explorer who 1893 sailed on an expedition to be the first human to reach the North Pole.

In the face of much discouragement from other polar explorers, Nansen took his ship, Fram (the name means “forward” in Swedish and Norwegian), to the eastern Arctic Ocean, froze the ship into the pack ice, and waited for the drift to carry her towards the pole.

Impatient with the slow speed and erratic character of the drift, after 18 months Nansen and a chosen companion, Hjalmar Johansen, left the ship with a team of dogs and sledges and head for the pole…

Just like Nansen, fram^ aspires to reach amazing achievements by approaching our industry in a way matched by no other
