The History of Iron Embers

It all started with three brothers and a shared vision for creating a better outdoor fire pit suited for life in Canada. Adrian, Eric, and Ken Tamminga began their journey by producing their first hand-crafted fire pit in 2006, which the family still uses to this day!

By the summer of 2011, the Tamminga brothers were able to bring their passion to life by establishing Iron Embers. Since then, the business has grown from a small family-owned and operated manufacturing operation to an emerging leader in the premium outdoor fire pit community.

We believe in sourcing high-quality materials and constructing each unit with precision craftsmanship to ensure your fireside experience will stand the test of time.
