Do you offer factory tours?

No. Due to insurance reasons we do not offer tours of our production site in Magdeburg.

Do you offer a factory outlet?

There is no classic factory outlet. However, in April 2018, we opened the Petromax Product World at our production site in Magdeburg. At this exhibition area of more than 200 square metres, we present all products of the traditional brand Feuerhand. You are invited to have a close look at the assortment, touch it, and of course buy it. If you desire, we offer a personal and detailed product consulting on-site.

Can I also order the Feuerhand hurricane lantern in my favourite colour or with a particular embossing?

Yes. On request, we offer you the opportunity to order the lantern in the colour of your choice or with individual embossing. The price will be calculated based on expenditure. Please note that minimum purchase amounts are required and that we do not offer single manufactured products. We would be glad to prepare an individual quotation for you.
