PartnershipSSM’s value proposition is to deliver affordable, highly aspirational Rocket stoves and a new generation of cleaner burning stoves to existing distribution chains in profitable markets. Marketing the stoves through the highly successful Burn Manufacturing Company benefits both organizations. The stoves will also be added to hundreds of profitable products now on shelves in thousands of retail stores. SSM is well connected to the customer base and both distributors and retailers continually meet to update SSM on product improvement. The current products have been refined by over five years of sales.
