Industrial Revolution, Inc. was founded in Redmond, Washington as UCO Corporation in 1971. After a few years of making metal parts for K2, JanSport, and Boeing, we introduced our Original Candle Lantern. Filling a niche, this lantern became a staple outdoor accessory. UCO quickly became the world leader in the production of Candle Lanterns with designs and accessories that were superior to all other available products. Innovation has been a cornerstone of the company ever since.
Over the last 12 years, we have focused on expanding our product offerings. We are now home to a wide variety of products and brands. Our portfolio includes both in-house brands, like UCO, Pedco, & Intova, as well as exclusively distributed European brands, such as Morakniv, Esbit and Light My Fire. With each addition to our product family, we focus on outdoor products that are high quality, uniquely innovative and affordable.
We are currently based in Tukwila, WA just outside Seattle. Mt. Rainier and the Green River are out our back door. Literally.
Our passion is to make Happier Campers. From the end-consumers of our products, to our retail and distribution partners, to our in-house staff; we strive to provide products and experiences that brighten lives and bring a smile to your face. Our niche is creating and distributing clever gear that elevates outdoor adventures, and we are committed to the following values:
We pride ourselves on innovative, clever products; our time tested Pacific Northwest Heritage; and customer support that is second to none.
