Manager Business Development

At Artola, we believe it is fire that brings people together outdoors. Fire provides heat to prepare meals. Fire keeps people warm and creates a cozy ambience. Most of all, though, fire reaches into people’s hearts and rouses their burning desire to reconnect with themselves and each other. Fire kindles the spirit of togetherness. After creating miracle cookware for over 50 years, we are now proud to introduce fiQ, our revolutionary BBQ fire pit crossover.

The fiQ-range is the first range of products that we have introduced to the market recently. More developments are on their way and are planned to hit the market in 2019.
