the 5th Best-Selling Brand, placing them ahead of many well-known name brands. EKA continually strives to bring
to market, premium, cutting edge, best in class products at fair and competitive prices. EKA’s range is currently comprised of products for the avid outdoorsman, tactical & rescue services, culinary experts, collectors and industry professionals.

EKA has worked with thousands of global brands, such as Volvo, Electolux, Absolut Vodka, Daimler Benz, Mobil, Coca-Cola, Gulf, Wilkinson, IBM, McDonnell Aircraft, 3M, Nokia and 44,000 others.
