Meet the Founders of 4Patriots


That’s what it takes to be free.

Imagine signing your name to a piece of paper that made you a target for the biggest and most powerful military force in the world. 

Our forefathers did just that on this day in 1776.

They believed in freedom so much — they put their lives on the line. 

Over the years, countless brave Americans have done the exact same. They answered the call and fought to protect our freedom.

And thanks to their courage and sacrifice…

We’re the strongest nation in the world. A shining city on the hill. The home of the free and the brave. The best example of democracy and freedom the world has ever known.

So what does Independence Day mean to us here at 4Patriots? Everything. It’s why we started this company. Because 4Patriots champions freedom and self-reliance.

Here’s a new video from our 4Patriots co-founders (and my kids!) Allen & Erin to tell you the inside story of how we started the business at a kitchen table way back in 2008:

It’s true. Everything they talked about is why the folks here at 4Patriots wake up each day excited to go to work. Because we know we’re going to help hard-working Americans — like YOU — get the peace of mind you deserve. 

It’s the same reason why we create insider-only things like our July 4 event. So folks like you can get exclusive access to products that protect their family in today’s crazy world. 

Here’s the bottom-line…

At 4Patriots, we’re all about helping you be more self-reliant, more independent and get more peace of mind. 

We’ve been blessed to serve millions of patriotic Americans like you in the last 15 years. 

We’ve come a long way together. And I promise, we’re gonna keep working hard every day to earn the right to serve you for the next 15 years. 


Look, in addition to celebrating the true meaning of this special holiday, I’m sure you have plenty of fun & fireworks planned, so I’ll wrap this up.

On behalf of everyone here at 4Patriots...

Happy Independence Day and have a safe and joyous 4th of July!

To your freedom,  

Frank Bates

    My family owned company has been around for 140 years. We’re not huge, but have a nitch we fill for our worldwide customer base…sort of like Coca Cola, but unfortunately we don’t have the general public for customers. My wish is for you to be around for many years as well. I have the 1800 and mini generators and several other items which I have purchased over the last couple of years. I find them high quality, they work as advertised, and are reasonably priced. I will probably get a couple of add on solar panels to speed up charging of the 1800, but for the time being, I’m well satisfied with your products and am impressed with your company. Keep up the good work and thank you.

    Thank you for your vision and for your products. Thank you for your patriotism.

    One thing I’d like to see is to be able to use the $25 coupons on-line. I have hundreds of dollars of coupons to use but since I order online and not over the phone, I don’t get my discounts. Just something to think about.

    Love your products, love your company! Congratulations on a job well done!

    May God continue to walk with you!
