CMP completes fourth acquisition gaining a visionary partner in Bobé Water & Fire LLC. The combined efforts completes the CMP offering of aesthetic outdoor features, as well as adding new manufacturing technology and talent.
Product innovations from Bobé include Torrent®, the newest addition from the Perfect Flame® line.

It is compatible with both manual and automatic ignition systems.
“Bobé represents an exciting opportunity for CMP. They have a great product line, but equally important they have great ideas for future products. We can help by providing resources to get those ideas developed and delivered to market,” said Bill Drury, CMP President & CEO.
