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 durable stainless steel drums. The results were so extraordinary that he built a world class engineering and manufacturing facility on the family farm, where it still stands 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, and environmental awareness.
We perform long life tests on our washing machines and clothes dryers of 10,000 hours, which equates to around 20 years of domestic use.
