Tame The Flame
About The Company
Seven years ago, this company began its journey unofficially. As a seller of high-temperature industrial materials to the Aerospace and Forging Industry, I became increasingly frustrated with fire pits that continuously smoldered throughout the night. The rain only worsened the situation, transforming the soot into an unyielding, black cement-like substance. I also grew concerned about the safety of children and pets around the hot fire pit after the cookout ended. In search of a solution, I purchased a store-bought cover, only to witness it melting and creating a disastrous mess. Undeterred, I was determined to find a better alternative. Taking some of my materials to a local sew shop for testing proved to be a rewarding endeavor. The materials proved highly effective. Encouraged by this success, I began crafting fire pit covers for family and friends.
As I toiled away, perfecting the firepit cover and my high temperature grill cover, Chill The Grill, a significant moment unfolded. My wife arrived home, her eyes brimming with tears after a challenging day at her cleaning company. She recounted an unpleasant encounter with a rude and insulting client, her back aching with discomfort. In that moment, I made a resolute decision—it was time for her to leave her cleaning career behind. Doubling my efforts, I poured my energy into perfecting the cover and propelled this company into motion.
Recognizing the fundamental role of oxygen in fueling fire, I designed the cover to obstruct the air intakes with a patented ring positioned at the base of the bonfire. By blocking the air vents, the fire could be extinguished within minutes. Excitement surged through me, and I enlisted the help of product testers, who were equally astounded by the results. It became abundantly clear that we had stumbled upon something truly extraordinary. With two sewing machines in hand, my wife and I joined forces, stitching these covers together. Buoyed by feedback from testers and that pivotal moment, we set out on a quest to refine and perfect our creations.
Our unwavering dedication has been devoted to perfecting our product. Today, our company thrives with a team of seven committed employees, and our fabrication shop buzzes with the hum of numerous sewing machines.
Our mission is straightforward, yet undeniably essential—to provide fellow campfire enthusiasts with a safe and convenient method to control their fires. We want them to enjoy their fires with peace of mind, knowing that when the night comes to an end, they can cover it securely. Safety and convenience lie at the core of our ambition.
Furthermore, alarming government statistics reveal that a staggering 85% of wildfires are caused by human actions, with unattended campfires playing a significant role. The consequences of a sudden storm, with fierce winds blowing embers around an unattended campfire, are unimaginable. In response, we have engaged with several State and Federal Agencies, including CALFire, to develop a cover with an attachment chain—a safe and practical solution to the issue of unattended campfires. In our pursuit of proximity to the problem, we relocated our operations to California.
And so, the story of our company unfolds—fueled by passion, commitment, and an unwavering determination to enhance the campfire experience for all. With each cover we produce, we aim to protect our precious landscapes and communities from the devastating impact of wildfires.
