SwedePro—Outfitting for Safety since 1985

Founded in 1985, the SwedePro brand was established by Swedish entrepreneurs Soren Eriksson and Gabriel Brånby, to meet the growing need for chainsaw protective clothing in the United States. Production started with chainsaw protective pants and chaps in order to provide the best protection for professional loggers. Over time, as safety training programs like “The Game of Logging” became more widespread, there was a shift towards a greater emphasis on safety throughout the broader industry.

SwedePro executives collaborated with industry experts to develop the ASTM standards for chainsaw protection in the US. Today it is clear that safety is important not just for the professional logger, but for every homeowner, farmer, and occasional chainsaw user. At SwedePro, we are passionate about manufacturing our safety apparel right here in the US so that all chainsaw users can have access to life-saving protection.
