Sixty years ago Norm Coghlan founded Coghlan’s Ltd. with the Camp Stove Toaster, establishing the foundation for what would become the largest single brand of camping accessories in the world. Prior to forming his own company, Norm Coghlan sold lanterns, camp stoves, and parts primarily to the hardware market in the United States and Canada.
In 1959, he bought a small service depot in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and operated it as a private company.
Today, tradition holds true. The Camp Stove Toaster is still in the product line – but now alongside over 500 accessories that make being in the outdoors more enjoyable. Coghlan’s provides superior product and packaging, outstanding customer service, and maintains community relationships to make us the first choice in outdoor accessories.
