It started back in 1950 in Vara, Sweden with an innovative young man’s dream to build a washing machine for his mother to suit her every need. A unique, energy- and water efficient washer that would reflect a farmer’s love for nature. One with superior cleaning performance and reliability that could heat water, spin and even had both durable and stainless steel wash drum.
Today, more than 60 years later, ASKO is a global brand which design and develop premium Laundry, Kitchen and Professional appliances. Our machines meet the highest demands on design, function, durability and environmental awareness.
