Norm Coghlan started what is now a world leader in outdoor camping accessories with a single product, the toaster. Prior to forming Coghlan's, Norm spent his time selling lanterns, camp stoves, lamps, mantels, and parts. He noticed there was a demand to be able to make toast on pump-up gasoline stoves. Coghlan found that a toaster item was already in production but was going to be discontinued, he bought the rest of the inventory and rented a small storage space - Coghlan's as we know it was born. Now Coghlan's makes everything from toasters to emergency thermal blankets, and everything in between!
