In 1933, three entrepreneurial Swedish orienteering brothers Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first ever liquid-filled compass. Their solution was more precise and set the global standard for how navigation devices work. The SILVA brand was born. SILVA compasses remain the preferred choice for orienteers and outdoor enthusiasts around the world. The range includes compasses, map cases, pedometers and outdoor equipment.
