Three entrepreneurial brothers. A fantastic invention.


In 1933, Björn, Alvar and Arvid Kjellström invented the first liquid-filled Silva compass, that was the starting point for our business. Not only was it the first compass with that technology, it also set a global standard for how navigation equipment works. It was then that Silva as a brand was born. A few years later, more precisely in 1935, we broadened our business area with a new invention, namely the Zeiler headlamp.
