International Awards

Ever since the 1950's when we began our journey as a small producer of appliances, we have been richly awarded for our design, functionality and innovations. 
Now, almost 70 years later we are proud of the recognition ASKO has received for the premium level of design, quality, and performance of our products. Below you can find a small collection of some of the awards we have received through the years.
