It all began in 1976 with a small steel fabrication business, named Wolf Steel, launched by Wolfgang Schroeter, which started by manufacturing steel railings in Barrie, Ontario, Canada.
In 1981, the name Napoleon® was born. Time after time Napoleon® has led the way with new and innovative patented technologies: luxurious Gourmet Gas Grills, exclusive Infra-red grilling experience and some of North America’s most advanced state-of-the-art technology. Innovative engineering and design, advanced manufacturing techniques, dedicated customer service, outstanding product quality, and superior warranties distinguish Napoleon® from its competitors.
Napoleon® operates with 1,200,000+ square feet of manufacturing space and over 1000 employees. Napoleon is probably North America’s largest privately owned manufacturer of quality wood and gas fireplaces (inserts and stoves), gourmet gas grills and charcoal grills, outdoor living products and heating & cooling products. They manufacture the only gas furnaces made in Canada.
Napoleon’s commitment to producing quality products combined with honest, reliable service has proven to be a successful framework to ensuring the continued rapid growth of the company.
