History of ASKO


In 1950, an enterprising young Swedish farmer named Karl-Erik Andersson set out to build his mother a different kind of washer. A unique, energy and water efficient machine which would reflect a farmer's love and respect for nature. A machine with superior cleaning power and reliability that could heat water, spin, and even boast durable, state-of-the-art, stainless-steel drums. 

The young farmer, surpassed even his meticulous mother's high standards. Karl-Erik Andersson and his family were so convinced of their innovative product, they built their world-class engineering and manufacturing facility right on the family farm, where it stands to this day

The heart of the home


For many of us, the kitchen really is the heart of the home. Not only is it where we make the food that nourishes us, it's also a place where creativity and enjoyment can be let loose – with the right ingredients, and the right equipment. 

As a result, we have created our kitchen appliances to function beautifully, but also to give you the chance to explore your own passion for food and drink. They've been inspired by the durability and versatility of professional kitchens, designed to harmonize with your home, and built to last for years. But above all else, they've been made to let you create, serve and store healthy, delicious food.
