Primus started in Stockholm, 1892, when F.W. Lindqvist and J.V. Svenson created the world’s first soot-free kerosene stove. As this was the first, they named it 'Primus', meaning 'first'. Since then, Primus have an ambition to provide outdoor lovers, like themselves, with the freedom to explore and continue to provide high quality and innovative products.
