Dennis Smith conceived the idea of Firegear in a coffee shop in June of 2003.
The company started in a small room in the basement of his home, and its first product was a small gas log set, which proved to be very popular.
However, it didn't take long for Dennis to decided that the gas log business was highly competitive and oversubscribed.
As a result, Firegear changed direction and concentrated 100 % on the outdoor fire products.
It didn't take long for Firegear Outdoors to become one of the premier manufacturers, specializing in innovative burner systems and outdoor fire features.
In 2013 Firegear was acquired by Skytech Direct Inc and continued to flourish within that partnership, as Firegears reputation for the highest quality products grew.
More recently, in 2019, Firegear Direct was acquired by AMD Direct, the company responsible for the well known Summerset range of Grills.
