About Us

Here at SteelFreak, we manufacture and distribute top quality fabricated steel products for your hearth, home, and patio. Our mission is to help our customers get the most out of their indoor and outdoor spaces. With careful attention to detail, we design and build products that both our employees and our customers can be proud of.   

Who We Are

SteelFreak's parent company, Federated Trade, was established in Kennesaw, Georgia in 2009. Our founder, Jimmy Richardson, initially formed the company with the purpose of liquidating second quality and overstock inventory online. Soon Federated Trade expanded its product line to new products. Sales grew quickly. When the company’s largest vendor decided to discontinue production of their fire pit grates in 2011, Jimmy saw an opportunity to fill that niche. He sought out alternate manufacturers to produce a new line of fire pit grates and began selling these grates online.

By 2014, Jimmy decided it was time to start manufacturing his own products. He purchased the necessary equipment, rented a small warehouse space, and hired his uncle John - a 35 year veteran of the fireplace manufacturing industry - to manage production. Within six years the company outgrew its first, second, and third warehouses. In April of 2020 the company moved into its current 36,000 square foot facility in LaFayette, Georgia. We now have over 10 employees and are continuing to expand our product line.

Today almost all of the products we sell are designed and manufactured in-house under our SteelFreak brand. We are striving to establish the brand as a market leader in home, hearth, and patio accessories with a reputation for durability and solid build quality.

Our passion for our craft translates into the highest ratings from customers on every online marketplace that we sell. We are truly proud of our excellent seller feedback and product reviews. We work hard to maintain that excellence.
To get the most out of a high-quality fire pit, fireplace, or wood-burning stove, you’re going to need the right tools and accessories. Whether you’re looking for a sturdy grate to lift your firewood off the ground for better airflow, or a heavy duty fire poker that can stoke even the largest fires, chances are we have just what you need. We have several distinct styles of round fire pit grates to choose from. Most are available in standard, heavy duty, and super heavy duty versions to meet every budget and use scenario.
