GrillSymbol- experiences since 1925
The first predecessor of modern GrillSymbol is the smith Johannes Moisar, who opened a smithy – ironmongery in 1925 in Tallinn by the Paldiski avenue. Among other products small iron pans and stove details were produced in the smithy.
Due to the Soviet annexation of Estonia, the company was nationalised in 1940 and due to different merging processes both the products and the experience was lost for the public. 57 years passed by. During this time the Estonian Republic was restored, entrepreneurship was reallowed and the perspective line of business needed to be started again.
In order to maintain historical continuity, the brothers Ivar and Laur Suurväli revived their family traditions.
In 1997, the company Symbol OÜ was founded and the first pans were made. The pans were a lot larger than in 1925, but the material remained the same. The generations-long experience confirms that the service life of a thick-bottomed iron pan can be up to 100 years.
In 2008, the manufacturing company GrillSymbol OÜ was established, the company started to develop pans that would beet the highest demands. By now, this has become our most popular line of products, bearing the name “PRO” – like a professional. The PRO products are highly durable and safe, easy to maintain and the pans have a long service life.
In 2006-2007 we expanded our product range and in addition to producing pans, we also started to manufacture BBQ Smokers. For developing the product, we used the experiences of many BBQ experts, who have used our products to take part in BBQ competitions in Estonia, Germany and the UK. Our Q-series Smokers are highly related both by professionals and household consumers, because our meat tastes exquisitely.
In 2016, we launched the pans from the “Basic” series. In comparison to the “PRO” series, “Basic” is cheaper and includes only the main details that a pan has to have.
In 2017, we returned to our roots and revived the experience we have producing outdoor fire pits. Our fire pits are designed keeping in mind the life style of a northern person: simplicity, practicality, quality materials and a minimalistic design combined with mythological symbols.
GrillSymbol is still a family company. The fifth generation is growing up with fresh ideas.
