History of Coleman
W. C. Coleman started his company in the early 1900’s by making gas lanterns in Witchita, Kansas. Not only did he provide light at a local football game, but his invention allowed farmers to work in the dark. In the 30’s, Mr. Coleman was making gas furnaces and space heaters while a Canadian plant was opened. During WWII, he was commissioned by the military to manufacture a portable cook stove that was light, convenient and could run on a number of fuel sources. After the war, the stoves became increasingly popular for camping. By 1957 an insulated food cooler was developed and the product line kept growing. Coleman now has plants in the US, Europe, Canada, Japan, Australia, Mexico and Venezuela.
