About Rafkaup

Rafkaup was founded on June 19th 1982 by Óskar Rafnsson, who opened a store at Suðurlandsbraut 4, Reykjavík. In the beginning, the main operations were importing retail lamps and electricity wiring for home use from Brilliant Leuchten AG, Germany.  That later developed into wholesaling across Iceland.
A new era began in the company´s history the year 1989 with the purchase of a real estate at Ármúli 24, Reykjavík. Rafkaup emphasized on wholesaling to retail shops, contractors and institutions, also on offers for construction developers.
