After 12 years of successful cooperation, Light My Fire of Sweden will take direct responsibility for all LMF product sales and support in the United States, starting on January 1, 2019. Industrial Revolution, Inc. will continue to ship LMF products and provide support to U.S. customers through December 31, 2018. This change covers all LMF products, including FireSteel and related fire-starting products, the MealKit and Spork, and the new Add-a-Twist storage system.
“The U.S. is very important for us and we see great potential and exciting opportunities here,” says Calill Odqvist Jagusch, CEO of Light My Fire of Sweden. “It feels like a natural step to be closer to this market and continue our high engagement strategy. We want to thank Industrial Revolution for a great collaboration during the past 12 years, during which we have had the opportunity to successfully grow the brand in the American market.”
IR has been the exclusive importer and distributor of LMF products in the United States since 2005. “As Light My Fire of Sweden moves forward with the decision to service the market directly, we wish them all the best,” says Keith Jackson, owner of Industrial Revolution Inc. “This has been a very successful partnership over the last dozen years, including the sales of more than 15 million Sporks.”
