Founded in 1689 in Sweden, Husqvarna has a very extensive product range with everything from professional machines to products for demanding consumers. When the company started we produced what were probably the finest muskets of the day. And it was then that we lay the foundation for the engineering expertise that has since helped us develop some of the world’s best products in areas such as hunting weapons, bicycles, motorcycles, kitchen appliances, sewing machines and outdoor products.
An environmental approach to production and product life cycles
As a manufacturer of outdoor products, we have a great responsibility in environmental issues. Therefore we have developed a holistic approach that affects our entire operations, from production methods, packaging, noise and consumption of materials to the energy consumption, exhaust emissions and finally the recyclability of the products. We always prefer to use environmentally compatible materials in our production and we are continually replacing old materials with new, even more environmentally compatible alternatives, as these are developed.
The Husqvarna logotype
The symbol being the Husqvarna logo is referring to our gunsmithing history. To the right you see the oldest form as the hallmark of a passed musket, symbolizing the sight over the barrel. You see also the modern version indicating that Husqvarna is still keeping the future in sight.
