The Dansons Story
Dansons was founded in 1999 by Dan Thiessen and two of his sons, with the desire to turn the waste of sawmills into a reliable source of energy. Through widespread success in Canada, the US, and internationally, our company eventually went on to expand
its product line from horse and animal bedding to pellet fuel and pellet fuel appliances, and more recently to industry-leading brands such as Louisiana Grills and Pit Boss Grills.
Today, Dansons is a best-in-class, global consumer goods corporation that is proudly family-owned and managed, with the reputation that fits the founders – reliable, authentic, dependable, and honest. As the home of multiple award-winning,
consumer-backed brands, we consistently strive for quality and customer satisfaction in every area of our business.
Thanks to faithful leadership and team members, competitive industry-leading products, and our dedication
to support our communities, we are thankful to continue our mission to deliver superior results with uncompromising integrity while honoring God and reinvesting in those in need.
