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.
