Way back in 1975, an angry Swedish/Finnish electrician walked off the job because the gear he needed for work just was not good enough. It’s a sentiment we can all relate to. The source of his ire was the fact that as a worker, he felt that his clothing didn’t meet even the basic needs and standards to be useful on the job, especially in light of the fact that clothing for workers hadn’t even tried to keep up with the improvements in machines and methods for working. He saw this as his ticket to make clothes that improve the strength and freedom of movement while also making sure they were fit for the harsh working conditions in the Nordic realm of Scandinavia. This mindset of continuous improvement to match improved technology has helped Snickers stay relevant for more than 40 years.
Over the decades, Snickers has kept the end user in mind when coming up with designs for new workwear thus ensuring that the lives of workmen are made safer, easier and more productive. With this mindset, Snickers doesn’t just make workwear, they’re constantly inventing workwear.
