Primus

In 1892, Frans W. Lindqvist, with the help of his brother, constructed the first soot-free kerosene stove, which he started selling to friends and neighbors. It was called a Primus. With Johan Victor Svensson he founded the Primus company in Sweden and began manufacturing its first model, the No.1 stove.

Primus stoves have been used on numerous expeditions. In 1911 explorer Roald Amundsen used a Primus stove on his expedition to reach the South Pole, and in 1952 Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay used a Primus on their Mount Everest expedition.

In the 1940s and '50s, Primus began developing LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) stoves, LPG lanterns, and LPG cylinders. In 1996 the Primus MultiFuel was tested on Mount Everest; it was the first stove to run on LP gas, white gas, kerosene, and aviation fuel. And in 2001, Primus launched the OmniFuel, which can be used with virtually any kind of fuel, including Primus PowerGas canisters, gas, gasoline/petrol, diesel, kerosene/paraffin, and aviation fuel.

Today, Primus offers a full line of backpacking, expedition, and camping stoves, as well as lanterns, cookware, and more. Primus and Brunton are both owned by the Brunton Outdoor Group.
