Our Company & Our Mission

Founded in 1966, AEI has operated under a consistent premise: provide the finest in innovative outdoor cooking and patio heating products to discriminating consumers and commercial customers. We were there in the spring of 1958 when the gas grill was invented; we were there in 1968 when the first production patio heaters were fabricated and have been innovators in both of these industries ever since.

Today AEI is the only single source for all aluminum gas grills (our A Series), all stainless steel gas grills (our Legacy Series), and fully commercial gas grills (our T Series). AEI is also the only single source of quartz electric, horizontal gas, umbrella domed, Natural, and Propane Gas heaters.

Our mission has always been simple: supply the perfect cooking and heating equipment to enhance any patio then back it up with industry-leading warranties and support.
