The ASKO story is a good one. 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 machine that would reflect a farmer’s love for nature. One with superior cleaning performance and reliability that could heat water, spin and even boast with durable and stainless drums. The results were so extraordinary, that he built a world class engineering and manufacturing facility right on the family farm, where it still stands today 60 years later. Today ASKO design and manufacture premium Kitchen, Laundry and Professional appliances. We are proud that our machines meet the highest demands on design, function, durability as well as environmental awareness.
