Lennart (Len) Borgstrom: From 1954 to 1981, Abu Sweden and Garcia USA were not only very close business associates but were buyer and seller. Impecco Ltd. purchased and imported all Abu products for the U.S and Canada exclusively for The Garcia Corporation. Seams like back in the day, if you were a Mitchell fan, Abu was also in the mix! After Garcia's bankruptcy, Len Borgstrom, President of Abu, bought the remaining assets and most important, the "Garcia" name. He then changed his company's name to Abu Garcia, the rest is history!

Len Borgstrom's grandfather Carl Borgstrom had the foresight to take over the original watch-making business initially, and Len's father Gote made so many formative decisions with regard to A.B.Urfabriken. Len was very definitely nurtured in fertile grounds, allowing his innate engineering and management capabilities as well as his monumental personal efforts to come to the forefront, making ABU the company that it was.
