Husqvarna mowers are made in the United States as of the end of 2014. The company manufactures its walk-behind mowers in McRae, Georgia, and it makes its ride-on mowers in Orangeburg, South Carolina.
Husqvarna is a Swedish company that began as a rifle manufacturer in 1620. When the rifle contract ended in the 19th century, the company began manufacturing a variety of other products, including sewing machines, wood stoves, bicycles and typewriters. Early in the 20th century, Husqvarna acquired a company that manufactured boilers and manual lawnmowers. Its first motorized lawnmower for homeowners hit the market in 1959, which is also the year when the company's first chainsaw was introduced.
