In 1933, the three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering brothers Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and set the global standard for how navigation devices work. The SILVA brand was born. To this day, SILVA compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world.
As a company, we are navigators, circling the globe, solving cross-country complexities. As individuals we are both omni-adventurers and everyday exercisers. This inspires us to test new products ourselves and add what we find out to other sources of information—like the valuable input we receive from our ambassadors around the world. We fold all of this experience and knowledge into the design and testing of the leading technology we are known for.
