A Global Brand
Our journey from relatively humble beginnings in a farming community in Sweden, to where we are now, with our appliances found in millions of homes worldwide, is something we're incredibly proud of. From one single washing machine, we've now progressed to the stage where we provide a full range of appliances for both kitchens and laundry. We always make sure that everything we produce displays our love for design, using visual flair and a strong aesthetic to create good-looking appliances for discerning customers. And we're driven to create appliances that are really useful, as well as solutions that improve the health and wellbeing of the people who use them. ASKO's appliances are exported and distributed by sales companies in the Nordics, USA and Australia, as well as 50 other markets worldwide. At ASKO we design and manufacture premium quality appliances which reflect our love for form and function – and, in doing so, which exemplify classic, timeless Scandinavian design. Ever since we began to produce washers in the early 1950s, our goal has been to make premium quality products that will become cherished parts of the home, meeting and exceeding your expectations for years to come. In order to make sure that the appliances take care of you as capably as possible, we need to make sure that they work perfectly. So, we test all of our products before they leave the factory – and any machine that fails to pass our comprehensive tests won't get sold. One of the hallmarks of Scandinavian design is a combination of the kind of functionality that makes you want to use an item every day, with care for the environment, and clean, easy-on-the-eye lines that harmonize with your home. At ASKO, we adore this principle. We believe that carefully-designed products shouldn't just look good: they should also increase your quality of life. And in order to set ourselves apart in a market filled with cluttered, complex and voluptuous designs, we aim for a soft, humanistic minimalism based on the principle of quiet being the new loud. And since nature is on our doorstep, it's only natural that we do everything we can to preserve and protect our environment. We're always trying to find the most environmentally friendly solutions and make best use of resources while we're making our products. We also try to minimize the environmental impact of all our activities and products. Our factories are all certified in accordance with ISO 14001, meaning that our processes and routines are all carried out in the most environmentally friendly ways possible.
