Developer and producer of compasses, weather instruments, marine instruments and outdoor equipment.
IN 1933, A MERE 14 YEARS AFTER MODERN ORIENTEERING became a competitive sport, three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering champions invented the liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and easier to use than other compasses at the time. The SILVA brand was born.
Silva also set the scene for innovation in diverse outdoor sports areas by launching our first headlamp already in 1935. Although our company has changed since then, Silva compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. As farmland, fields and forests pass underfoot, our instruments guide their steps.
Presently, Silva's main business areas are Sport, Outdoor and Professional. Within each of these areas you will find headlamps, compasses, pedometers, binoculars, professional instruments and other products. Every single one of them charged with the unstoppable passion of the Silva people.
