Alsterfors started off as an iron foundry but began making glass in 1885, when the factory was bought by J. A. Gottwald Fogelberg, who was previously a manager of Kosta.

Alsterfors became part of the Association of Swedish Crystal Manufacturers in 1903, but changed hands many times. Well-known designers at the factory include Edvin Ollers (1930-34), Ingrid Atterberg (1958-64), Fabian Lundkvist, and of course Per Olof Strom (1968-72).

The factory ceased production in 1980.
