Norm Coghlan started a gas appliance business in Canada in 1959. As a result of many campers buying from the store, Coghlans also sold a few camping supplies as a side product.
This eventually lead to even more campers coming to the store, which prompted Coghlan's to expand their product line and eventually become a primary supplier of camping gear.
The biggest change that lead Coghlans to expand into the widespread manufacturer they are today, was actually quite a fluke. For an unkown reason, Coghlans supplier stopped making a special camping bread toaster, which was a rather popular item. Not wanting to lose sales, Coghlans began manufacturing their own version of this item, which soon took off as a hit. With this camp toaster becoming so popular they were able to expand into an even larger manufactuer and over time added hundreds of new products.
Coghlans remains a family owned business despite its incredible growth and expansion over the years. As a result you can always expect quality service and assurance.
We at the Survival Camping Store are proud to be a retailer of Coghlan's products. We offer almost all of their products on our site and have self tested many of them. As a result, we always recommend Coghlans products as they have never let us down, not to mention they also have the most competitive prices in the market of survival gear and camping supplies.
