Trangia was founded in 1925 by John E. Jonsson, who was a technically gifted and enterprising designer from an early age. John E. Jonsson, together with his father-in-law, started the company that has dominated the Swedish storm-proof stove industry for more than half a century. The company and the ingenuity have since been passed down to new generations of the family.
Trangia represents long experience, solid competence and modern design. During it´s fifty years, the Trangia stove has been developed and refined. Components have been up-dated and the performance has been optimised. But the original, ingenious design is still the key to today's successful Trangia stoves.
