   In 1977, Kurt Rumens first began selling stoves to supplement his income as a rock musician.  Soon, some retailers started suggesting product improvements so he drafted sketches incorporating the best ideas and submitted back to his manufacturer. He quickly received a terse letter telling him to stick to selling and not product development; but recognizing the importance of aesthetics and efficiency in hearth design, he used the feedback as the foundation for his own hearth-products company. So in 1979, he created what is now known as Lopi. The next year, Lopi pioneers the now standardized use of clear ceramic glass and a pre-heated airwash system within wood stoves to keep the fireviewing opening clean.  In 1984, Lopi becomes the first U.S. hearth products manufacturer to develop an EPA-certified, non-catalytic wood stove. Today, Lopi is the brand now known for its American classic style of innovation into its high-performance wood, gas and pellet burning stoves, fireplaces and inserts.

Melcon. Today, the Avalon brand is known for its beautiful wood, gas and pellet fireplaces, stoves and inserts, featuring organic styling and natural design.
