BORN IN 1936 AND STILL EXPLORING
Suunto was born in Finland more than 80 years ago, when championship-level orienteer and keen outdoor enthusiast Tuomas Vohlonen invented the mass production method for the liquid filled compass. The word “Suunto” comes from the Finnish word meaning “direction”. Suunto is still based in Finland where most of our products are designed and hand crafted with pride in our flagship factory outside Helsinki. Our aim is to provide adventurers and sports enthusiasts with the best tools to explore and conquer new territory from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans – and anywhere in between.
