History of Coghlans

Posted by on 9/3/2011 to Survival Gear

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.

We know survival does not begin or end with the gear and tools you have at hand, but the knowledge you have in mind.
