The “us” is Travis Industries, the largest, privately owned wood, pellet and gas stove, insert and fireplace company in the North America. And here are three key things we want you to know about us:

We’re devoted.

  • To each other. What started more than 30 years ago as one wanna-be rock musician with a day job selling woodstoves is now a company of more than 600 people who all share deep-seated passion for fire. Some of our core employees, in fact, have spent their entire adult lives with us perfecting their crafts. Here’s proof.
  • To our dealers. And they’re equally devoted to us. In fact, some of our dealers have partnered with Travis – and only Travis – for nearly 30 years. We think that speaks volumes about the quality of our products and our people.
  • To our customers. Styles change. Tastes differ. Different spaces call for different solutions. At Travis, we offer many different options to personalize your fireplace or insert to make it your own, unique to your taste and needs.

We’re driven.

“Rediscover fire” isn’t just an invitation to our customers. We take it as a personal challenge – to push our industry in new directions, continually innovating more beautiful, cost-effective, and inspiring ways to integrate fire into everyday living. We’re apparently doing a great job given all the recognition we’ve gotten from people in the know. (See sidebar.)

And we love to talk fire.

Come visit the House of Fire, our 11-acre campus in Mukilteo, Washington. We promise, the tour’s not all about our state-of-the-art machinery or the fact that we’re die-hard steel recyclers (although we do find all that stuff fascinating). It’s entertaining, it’s inspiring, and it will truly open your eyes to exactly what makes our company and our products so unique.
