    C. R. Nybergs Lödlampfabrik
    Svea stoves were first made by C.R. Nybergs Lödlampfabrik, which also manufactured blowtorches as well as other machinery and equipment. Founded by Carl Nyberg, the firm later became one of the largest industries in Sundbyberg, Sweden. In 1922, the business was taken over by Max Sievert, an early associate of Nyberg’s, and renamed Sieverts Lödlampfabrik (later known as Sievert AB). The Svea 123, introduced in 1955, is considered to be the first compact.

    Interesting history on these two companies.

    I would have thought the Svea Campus 3 would have been considered the first compact, made at least 10 years before the Svea 123.

    The wikipedia article does make that claim but then goes onto mention the Campus 3. That's wikipedia for you! It also fails to mention the earlier Primus 70/71, Radius 42, Optimus 80 etc. All used by folk 'backpacking' long before it was called backpacking.

    I believe these were a government contract order & are now being cleared out as Government Surplus. One of our Swedish members may know more.
