The company built a cellulose factory near Sarpsfossen waterfall. This ushered in the era of modern industry with what would later become one of the largest industrial plants in Norway. In 1986 the two companies Orkla Industries and Borregaard merged into one company, Orkla Borregaard. When Orkla Borregaard then merged with Nora Industries in 1992, the new company took the name Orkla, while the chemicals business area kept the Borregaard name. Sarpsborg remained the headquarters of Borregaard. On the 18th of October 2012 Borregaard was separated from Orkla and listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.

Borregaard has 1050 employees in plants and sales offices in 16 countries throughout Europe, Americas, Asia and Africa. Health, safety and environment are integrated into Borregaard's business plan. The company aims to show social responsibility and work actively with initiatives that can contribute to sound environmental and social development.

In line with Borregaard´s strategy for specialisation and increased value creation, the company invests considerable resources in research and development. This is carried out at research centres in Norway, Spain, South Africa and the USA, as well as through extensive collaboration with customers, universities and research institutions in several countries.
