About Us

Patron is a North American line of electric, propane, and diesel portable heaters. Our products are manufactured in Finland and designed with safety and reliability in mind. We are committed to providing our clients with the quality solutions that their unique situations require, and we back this committment with a first-in-class warranty on all our heaters. With products ranging from small electric heaters to large indirect-fired diesel heaters, we are proud to be offering a first-class line of construction/industrial heaters to the North American market.


Patron Heaters was formed from the recognition twenty years ago that the Rental Industry in North America needed a choice of heavy duty construction heaters. Larry Kokkonen decided to answer the challenge to start the quest in Canada with electric heaters, followed by technically innovative propane models. A couple of years later a largely unfamiliar type in the Rental Industry, the indirect fired heater was introduced, and Patron in many ways pioneered the introduction of the concept and type at Trade Shows in Canada and the United States. Gradually Patron became a recognized brand in the industry, and with the involvement of Rentquip, it is poised to further solidify and expand its market share.
