About us

Learn more about our history and our team.


In 2013 Andy Gage sketched his vision for the original English Country FirePit Sphere, it was hand drawn and freehand plasma cut from a 6mm-thick steel ball on his farm on the Essex/Suffolk border. This was the birth of The Firepit Company.

Andy grew the business and soon after asked his good friend Jason André to help run the company. Andy now spends the majority of his time running his farm and providing expert advice and support to The Firepit Company. The Firepit Company is now run by Jason and his wife Diana and continues to go from strength to strength.  

We’re delighted our products have made so many people happy along the way – we love helping our customers bring their ideas to life to create something truly individual and personal to them.

Our team

Jason André

Managing Director

Jason has been involved with The Firepit Company since the beginning, in fact it was Jason’s wife that initially created the Facebook page. Following a career in education when Jason wanted a change it coincided with Andy needing more support in the business.
