The Husqvarna company was founded in 1689 in Huskvarna, Sweden.
Over the centuries this manufacturer has grown steadily into a global corporation. The Husqvarna Group is now represented in 40 countries with around 14,000 employees. The company’s headquarter is located in Stockholm, Sweden. Other important sites are in Charlotte, USA, in Ulm, Germany and in Shanghai, China. The main plant is still in Huskvarna in Sweden. Through its own sales companies and agencies around the world, Husqvarna products can be found in more than 70 countries worldwide.
Since 2006 the company has also been listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange.
It all started with the production of muskets. Thereafter, they have also developed products in other areas. Household appliances such as sewing machines and microwaves are manufactured. The first hand lawn mower was developed as early as 1918. In 1959, Husqvarna launched its first own chainsaw.
Through constant product developments and innovations as well as by observing the markets, it was possible to establish itself as the global market leader in forest and garden equipment. These include power tools for professionals as well as chainsaws, lawn mowers and even robotic lawn mowers for hobby gardeners. However, the Husqvarna Group also produces and markets successfully machines and tools for the construction and stone industries. These are in particular machines and diamond tools as well as the complete range of accessories for cutting, drilling, sawing and polishing floors. But also demolition equipment and machines are part of the product range. The Husqvarna brand always stands for high quality and product reliability.
