In 1933, Björn, Alvar, and Arvid Kjellström introduced the world’s first liquid-filled compass, marking the inception of the company. This pioneering compass not only represented a technological breakthrough but also established a global benchmark for navigation equipment. This pivotal moment gave birth to the Silva brand. A couple of years later, in 1935, the company expanded its product portfolio with the innovation of the Zeiler headlamp.

Today, the company primarily concentrates on three key product categories: sports, adventure, and professional applications. The company maintains an ongoing commitment to research and development, consistently enhancing its product offerings. This dedication to quality ensures that customers can rely on Silva’s products to enhance their outdoor experiences, making Silva a trusted companion for tomorrow’s adventures.
