Steeped in Swedish engineering, Primus has been globally recognized for pioneering outdoor cooking since 1892. Since then our innovative products have made countless expeditions possible through outstanding quality and performance: a Primus stove accompanied Roald Amundsen when he was the first person to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay used a Primus on Mount Everest when they climbed the summit on 29 May 1953.
However, these are just the most popular amongst several pioneering adventures that relied on Primus in the past. Until today, our search for improved technologies and smart solutions for the most adventures has never stopped.
Our passion for the outdoors and technical expertise is the secret behind every one of these innovations. It’s also the reason we hand test every stove before it leaves our state of the art European production facility in Estonia. Our goal is to ensure each and everyone becomes a truly reliable, life-long companion.
This approach is not limited to products for those who climb the highest mountains, enter hostile Polar regions and discover the most remote areas you can imagine. Our innovations also come into play for your everyday stove, lantern or accessories. We want you to enjoy your time outdoors. No matter where you are, no matter what you do!
