Katadyn Group

History since 1899

Optimus has its origins in Sweden and has been manufacturing outdoor stoves for more than a century. At the end of 2007, the Swedish Optimus was integrated into the Swiss Katadyn Group. Since its formation in Stockholm in 1899, Optimus has been developing and improving its products to become the clear first choice of demanding users throughout the world. Openair life is very much associated with activity, movement, and physical endeavour, often struggling with the weather at the same time. Optimus wants to give its users the opportunity of an hour’s peace with products that are safe and easy to use.
