A Visit to the Factory

A recent visitor to our factory graced our facebook page with a beautiful collage of pictures taken during a tour.  You can view the page here. We are thrilled our visitors shared their pictures.  We thought we would take a moment to share them with you, and hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

If you are in the area, we invite you to stop in and visit our showroom, explore the stoves we have on display, and take a tour of our factory.  Our showroom/factory hours are 9:00 to 5:00, Monday thru Saturday.  No appointment is needed.  Our fabricators, welders, and other employees are busy in the factory until 3:30, Monday thru Friday, but they do not mind a visit from you. 

Ideal Steel Hybrid with Maple Leaf Design
When you first enter our factory area, you may come across an Ideal Steel Hybrid stove (or two, three or more) that are in the inspection phase.  Before your stove is shipped, it gets thoroughly inspected to make sure everything is working as it should.  This particular stove has the maple leaf design (NAT006) on it.

Looks like these folks are getting a close up view of the front of the Ideal Steel and the ash pan.

Absolute Steel in Black with Metallic Mahogany, Prairie Wheat Pattern
Sitting near the Ideal Steel Stoves, waiting for inspection, is our newest stove, the Absolute Steel Hybrid.  This one is black, and has the Prairie Wheat pattern in Metallic Mahogany.  We have been building Absolute Steel beta stoves for test purposes.  We should have comments and results regarding UL clearance and other information for our new Absolute Steel Stoves posted soon.

Ideal Steel Andirons
As you walk towards the rear of our factory, you will go through the area where our Fireview, Keystone and Palladian stoves are made.   This picture shows some of our Ideal Steel Andirons which are lined up, waiting to be installed into a stove or shipped to a customer.

Fireview ready for shipment
Moving along through the Fireview section, we find a Fireview stove which is complete, waiting to be crated for shipment.

Section of our Factory
For over 38 years we have been building stoves and warming homes. From cast iron, soapstone, tubular steel, flat sheets of metal, designer art work, with fewer emissions and greater fuel efficiency, our engineers and employees never stop creating and designing.  We all work hard to bring the best product we can to our customers.

We enjoy having folks come to our showroom, and to see first hand what we do and how we do it. We are open 9-5 Monday thru Saturday.  You may have a factory tour any time we are open, with no special arrangements needed ahead of time.  Keep in mind that the shop is active until 3:30 in the afternoon, Monday thru Friday.  We hope to see you soon!
