Company Description

MF Fire is transforming wood heat into clean energy. We create smart wood burning technology and products that are efficient, safe, easy to use and good for the environment.

Key Deal Facts

We experienced substantial revenue growth, more than 100% YOY growth in product line and employees, to keep up with the demand
Based on extensive internal research and public data analysis, there are well over 100 million wood stove users worldwide and 1.5 million wood stoves are sold annually.
Due to new 2020 EPA emissions standards for wood stoves, we discovered more than half our competitors have been taken off the market, while MF Fire remains one of the very few companies to have met these requirements from the beginning.
