Over 100 years ago, a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit and a better idea began manufacturing lanterns in Wichita, Kansas. His name was W.C. Coleman. And the company he founded would change life in America. It's a fascinating saga, filled with historical significance, amazing innovations and delightfully fun things to know.
Over 100 years later, ColemanÂ® is a leading brand name in outdoor markets worldwide and sold in over 100 countries. Since the 1940's, Australians too have sought out ColemanÂ® products for their outdoor pursuits, or backyard relaxation, recognising the quality and innovation that goes into every product we make.
Our current range is thick with recently introduced products that make spending time outside a pleasure. There are tents, sleeping bags, air beds and pumps, coolers, chairs, tables, lights and cooking appliances just for starters, all designed for functionality and performance to suit New Zealand conditions, and there are plans for many new and exciting products on the drawing board.
"Don't let life put you back on your heels. Lean into it." - Sheldon Coleman Sr.
That mantra still guides Coleman®. We continue to lean into the future. Ours is a company with an uncanny ability to adapt to change. A company with an intimate understanding of the consumer. A commitment to research and development that breathes vitality into every aspect of the business. A company that sets industry standards.
We are defined by our heritage. And excited about our future.
