During a family camping trip, three engineers noticed the lack of portable cooking equipment available on the market for anyone travelling by road or camping outdoors. The trio set out to create a simple, yet revolutionary innovation – the first portable energy solution. Soon after, they introduced a small, blue, portable and refillable gas cylinder and named it the “bidon bleu”.
With this little blue gas cylinder, the brand CAMPINGAZ® was born and the company quickly expanded. By 1952, CAMPINGAZ® was also developing stoves and other easy-to-use, affordable equipment that enabled more and more people to enjoy the outdoors.
