In 2016 we - Carl Ljung and Henrik Frisk - started a small online shop selling pepper sprays and personal alarms that was already on the market and that was manufactured by other companies.
But something wasn't right. We had lots of ideas on how to improve these products (which have been largely the same for decades). We wanted to develop products that make use of modern technology to really maximize the chances of you escaping an assault, so we decided to found Plegium® - which means "pledge" in Latin.
It took us about 18 months of round-the-clock design and development to complete our flagship product - the Plegium® Smart Pepper Spray.
We are proud to say that it is the best pepper spray in the world. Nothing else comes close.
We are based in Sweden - you know that small country in Northern Europe that brought you IKEA, Spotify, Skype, Minecraft (!), the zipper and the dynamite, to name a few ;)
We do all design, development and manufacturing in-house. All functions on each and every product are fully tested. Doing everything in-house has proven to be extremely beneficial to keep costs down, and thereby being able to bring you our products at a low price.
We are rapidly expanding, and so far sell our products in 15 countries around the world (and counting). Our main market is the US, where we have a subsidiary - Plegium Inc - and we ship daily from our Dallas, TX warehouse.
With Kind Regards,
The Plegium Team
