ASKO & ATAG

ASKO is the global premium brand of the Hisense Group that designs and develops premium kitchen & laundry appliances which are sold under the ASKO (global) and ATAG brand (benelux).

The ASKO story is a good one. It started on a farm in Vara, Sweden, back in 1950. A young innovative man built a washing machine to ease his mother’s burden. In those days, it was a unique, energy and water-efficient machine. It had superior cleaning performance, with built-in water heating, spinning and a durable stainless steel structure. Others wanted a machine too, and soon serial production began.
Today, more than 70 years later, ASKO is a global brand that designs and develops premium kitchen, laundry and professional appliances. We manufacture our products with extremely high quality demands and we build our domestic appliances based on professional principles. ASKO helps people around the world to cook, clean and care for their families whilst looking after the environment.
