Gensun and AEI Corporation have partnered bringing together two family owned, customer service focused, high quality and high value conscious companies. “The combined product offering gives our customers the most comprehensive and coordinated outdoor product offering in the industry,” says Jan Trinkley, Gensun president and Pete Arnold, AEI Corp. president. “This partnership gives retailers the ability to offer consumers a one-stop shopping experience where they can furnish their entire outdoor room.”
Products offered from the two companies include; grills, side burners, beverage centers, refrigerators, patio heaters and ambiance fire features from AEI Corp.; furniture, tables, kitchens, fire pits, umbrellas, pillows and outdoor accessories from Gensun. Both companies offer products that are high quality with great value. Both companies offer products supported with excellent customer service. Both companies support the independent retailer and both companies do not sell to the “Big Box” stores.
AEI Corp. has the proud history to be the inventor of the outdoor gas grill. “My father built the first gas grill in our garage and I was there, says Pete. Today, we have a line of grills with many changes and improvements, including our patent pending automatic timer. This timer automatically shuts the gas off after one hour. It’s a great feature for backyard parties when everyone is enjoying the fun or apartment living when people walk away and forget.”
Gensun has the proud history to be the industry leader in manufacturing aluminum outdoor furniture and kitchens. “We use cast, extruded and stamped aluminum, combining these materials with woven vinyl, fabric, strap and high-pressure laminate to create beautiful furniture and kitchens that will withstand the heat and cold, ocean and desert, wind and rain,” says Jan.
Retailers will have the opportunity to see the products from both companies at the upcoming ICFA Premarket in July and the ICFA Market in September. The companies will also be showing their products at many hospitality, design, builder and multi-family shows.
