Two 19th-century fellows, F.W. Lindqvist and J.V. Svensson, began manufacturing kerosene stoves in a little blacksmith's workshop in central Stockholm in March 1892. They named their company J.V. Svensson's Kerosene Stove Factory, and they gave their stove the name Primus. The Primus EtaPackLite is a stove that really deserves its name - it's extremely small and easily collapsible, and powerful.
