Located in Mountain View, CA, Clore was founded by Sebastien Burkhardt and Barrett Deng who both have a passion for the wildfire industry and both want to make an impact on the environment. As a result, Clore was created with a mission on saving not just lives but also property. Since our launch in 2021, we have attended Diamond Challenge as a semifinalist, accepted into the WIT program, and are about to launch our newest product, Clore Wildfire Defense.
Sebastien Burkhardt and Barrett Deng started Clore when they were in Boston for a vacation and actually remember the date - July 21, 2021. There had been horrific wildfires on the West Coast and the smoke had drifted all the way to the East Coast! They started talking about the impact the fires were having on everyone and immediately, wanted to help. While they didn’t create the solution at that moment, it was the day when their company started. Clore is established as a corporation located in Delaware.
Today's fire seasons last 78 days longer on average than they did in the 1970s, and are projected to grow hotter, more unpredictable, and more expensive. There is a rapid increase in demand for fire retardant as wildfires continue to grow and burn millions of acres.
Our products are safe and effective; they are also flexible and can be adapted and customized to individual needs for fire prevention. We continue to invest in research and development with testing from third-party labs.
