Gardena GmbHEstablished 1961
Founded in 1961 by Werner Kress and Eberhard Kastner as an importer of French garden tools, Gardena today is a manufacturer of products for garden watering and care. The breakthrough came when they introduced the iconic Gardena System in 1968, combining components for watering such as tap connector, hose connector and watering accessories. With its distinctive orange colour and its typical design, the Gardena watering system has become a timeless classic and an inherent part in Europe’s gardens. Since 2007 the company is a member of the Swedish Husqvarna Group.
