EKA – When only the best is good enough
Throughout the world, Swedish company EKA is renowned for its elegant, functional Scandinavian design and first-class materials. After establishing EKA North America, it has seen steady growth and increased brand recognition throughout the world.
EKA has been designing and producing knives since 1882. The company, located in Eskilstuna, Sweden, has fast-established itself with a glowing reputation that has propelled it to become one of the best-selling knife manufacturers on the planet.
There are many events worth mentioning in EKA’s past. For example, in 1968 the “Classic 6” was the first EKA knife to go into space and in 1990 a Royal Warrant Certificate was awarded to EKA, by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
After 137 years, the company still upholds the same values that have made EKA an established, successful and sought-after brand. EKA says that it looks forward to continuing its rich history and welcomes the future and the opportunities that is may bring.
In 2016, EKA Knivar AB expanded its global footprint and brand exposure, by establishing an office and distribution centre in the South Florida (Miami – Fort Lauderdale – Palm Beach) area.
This new operation allows EKA to better service, support and supply the North and South American markets. EKA says that it is very satisfied with its decision to expand its global footprint.
The company continually strives to bring to market, premium, cutting edge, best in class products at fair and competitive prices.
EKA’s range is currently comprised of products for the avid outdoorsman, tactical and rescue services, culinary experts, collectors and industry professionals.
Promotional and personalised gifts have also been a large part of EKA’s market and success and for over half a century with the company has been working alongside thousands of global brands such as Volvo, Electrolux, Absolut Vodka, Daimler Benz, Mobil, Coca-Cola, Gulf, Wilkinson, IBM, McDonnell Aircraft, 3M, Nokia and 44,000 others.
It has also produced custom knives for the King of Sweden and former US Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Lyndon B. Johnson.
With a rich history and strong connections, EKA is a brand that you can trust and is highly likely to be a large volume seller in your retail shop – both in store and online.
Johny Kanaan, the man behind EKA, told Gun Trade World: “We are looking forward with great anticipation to EKA’s new presence in the United States and the endless opportunities that are to come.”
