Steeped in Swedish engineering, Primus has been globally recognized for pioneering outdoor cooking since 1892. Since then their 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 Primus 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. Their innovations also come into play for your everyday stove, lantern or accessories.
