Every company has a story – it is what shapes its subsequent values, which guide it throughout its life. Our history is now over 40 years old, and we can certainly say that we speak of it with pride – we wouldn’t be here where we are if it weren’t for Garos’ beginnings. We invite you to learn more about our history!


Garos is a family company, a family that has a history of being active in the meat industry since the 1930s. Garos itself is currently managed by the second and third generation and has been active for close to 40 years.

transformation and development

Garos started as an agent, reselling equipment for meat processing in Scandinavia. However, in the mid-1980s Garos decided to change its course and started to manufacture equipment instead. Originally this was limited to brine injector and tumblers, since then our product range and market scope has expanded. Garos now has a strong market position as one of the leading suppliers to the global meat processing industry and as a manufacturer at the forefront of meat processing technology.


Garos’ founding family is still one of the major players in the business. However, over the years they have included strong business partners from the industry. These partners are from the meat and food industries, and being from various areas they are able to provide valuable insights that assists Garos’ flexibility. This, together with the fact that the Gustafson’s are still involved, has afforded Garos a high degree of stability and reliability throughout the years. The combination of flexibility and a constant drive to improve, which is then tempered by stability and goal oriented thinking, gives Garos a unique and strong platform to grow from.
