Electrolux Kelvinator started about 90 years ago when Axel Wenner-Gren spotted a vacuum cleaner in a shop window in Vienna, Austria and realized that these should be in every home. Thereby, the Lux 1 - the first vacuum cleaner and then the absorption refrigerator was created.

In 1910 Electrolux was incorporated as Elektromekaniska AB which merged with Swedish AB Lux in 1919. Electrolux manufactured the modern canister-type vacuum cleaner and the absorption refrigerator during the early 20th century.

In 1928, Electrolux was introduced on the London Stock Exchange. Then it comprised of five plants with almost twenty subsidiaries and 250 offices all over the world. In 1930, Electrolux was listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange. Later in 1933 Vacuum cleaner production began in Old Greenwich, Connecticut, and USA. In this year the first air-cooled refrigerator was produced.

In the late 20th century the company strengthened its core business. In 1994, it purchased the white-goods division of German AEG. In 2000, Electrolux AB re-acquired the trademark and company name "Electrolux" and around the year 2003-04 the consolidation of brands accelerated. In 2006, all shares in Husqvarna AB were distributed and each share in AB Electrolux was entitled the owner to one share in Husqvarna AB.
