With a 130-year history, Primus will continue innovating and producing the highest-quality outdoor cookware for adventurers around the world.

“Everyone is excited for this opportunity to grow and build the Primus brand and to partner with Silva to create synergies between the two companies,” said Manuel Dürmoser, head of product at Primus-Silva. “With Silva’s expertise in the technical hardgoods category, Primus will be able to leverage processes and opportunities to improve upon our products and services going forward.”
