innovations is in our nature

Through continuous innovations, award-winning products and environmental consciousness our relentless passion to pioneer outdoor cooking continues.   

It all started in a small workshop in Stockholm back in 1892, when F.W. Lindqvist and J.V. Svenson created the world’s first soot-free kerosene stove. They named their groundbreaking invention Primus, meaning ”the first” in Latin.  

Since then we create products based on a genuine love and respect for nature. Drawing on more than 125 years of experience, technical expertise, first class engineering and use of sustainable materials we continue to develop products that are truly reliable, life-long companions.
