We subject our recipes to continual testing.
Our DNA – License to Win – obliges us to take this approach.
Consequently, characteristics such as friction or the yield of new SYNTEC agents in recipes are put
through intensive tests.
The state-of-the-art equipment in our laboratory ensures the finest quality and
maximum functionality. Tailor-made, exclusive SYNTEC agents speak for themselves,
and each product must impress on its own merits.
HOLMENKOL is the License to Win from Lillehammer to Val di Fiemme and Beaver Creek to Moscow. Our test team covers over
150,000 km each year by car, plane and train to test our products under practically every
snow and weather condition. -30 °C to +10 °C, fresh or old snow – our products must be convincing to earn our License to Win seal.
