Chantal Cookware Corp.
Founded in October 1971, Chantal – a family owned company, is proud to have recently celebrated 45 years of strength, determination and success. CEO and founder, German-born Heida Thurlow, relocated to the United States in 1970 and soon began her entrepreneurial journey. Trained as a mechanical engineer, Heida has the distinction of being the first woman in the U.S. to launch and run a cookware company. She has received numerous design and utility patents for teakettles and kitchenware products. Chantal was the first to bring dramatic color, tempered glass lids and stay-cool handles to the kitchenware marketplace and continues to dedicate itself to the creation of innovative products, bringing elegance to the home. When not focused on product innovation, Chantal strives to find ways to give back through cause marketing efforts and through the Chantal Foundation.
