Industrial Revolution

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    Industrial Revolution started manufacturing camping gear in Redmond, WA in 1971. We started by making ski boot buckles and had our first hit product with our Original Candle Lantern. Through the 1990s we released more lanterns and built a loyal customer following. In recent years, we have pursued a more aggressive growth strategy, launching many new products and forging new partnerships. Beginning in 2005, we became the US distributor for Light My Fire of Sweden. Since then, we have experienced their Spork and Swedish FireSteel catapult the brand to popularity among outdoor enthusiasts. In 2008, we purchased long-time partner Pedco, maker of UltraPod camera tripods. In 2011, we began distributing Esbit, in 2012 we acquired Grilliput, and in 2013 we are pleased to announce our exclusive distributorship of Mora knives. All these great new products have fueled our growth and solidified our close relationship with our customers.


    The people here are outdoor enthusiasts who love hiking, camping, biking, boating - anything that gets us out of the factory for a little while. Our team has a broad range of interests, which helps us with one of the most exciting tasks we have: developing new products. Most of the crucial outdoor accessories have been around for decades, and the proven products are very hard to improve upon. For us, building a better match case or shrinking a lantern is a challenging yet satisfying process.


    We are privately held, and feel our main responsibilities are building quality products for customers, providing reliable service for dealers, and taking care of our employees. We recognize that not every decision is driven by the bottom line and we endeavor to constantly improve the sustainability, efficiency, and precision our operations.
