Supporting Canadian Made | Spotlight on Enviro Fireplaces
For 98 years, Hubert’s Fireplaces has been proud to carry and support Canadian made products. When we buy Canadian, we directly impact our economy in many positive ways – this is especially important now during this uncertain health crisis. Every dollar we spend in Canada means that we are securing jobs for Canadians who need them.
Enviro Fireplaces (division of Sherwood Industries) is one of those Canadian-owned companies that we are proud to support. Now in its 30th year, Enviro was the first pellet stove manufacturer in Canada with the introduction of the EF Pellet Stove in 1990, and now carries a variety of gas and pellet fireplace options. Superior quality and attention to detail have provided Enviro with a competitive advantage for decades.
The Human Touch
One of the values we appreciate is Enviro’s “human touch” – unlike many of their competitors, Enviro’s team is extremely hands-on through the manufacturing process including hand welding processes, and increased amount of human hand quality checks which results in low failure rates. They’re recognized as having one of the most stringent quality standards on the market. Enviro has an extensive facility where they employ cutting edge technologies using CAD and state-of-the-art steel cutting lasers, all designed to give the best design with the highest standards of engineering.
Canada’s manufacturing industry is highly regulated, from factory environmental emissions, to the quality assurance practices, to materials used and more. These Canadian safety measures often means that buying products made in Canada keeps us safe.
Thinking Outside the Box
As a family-grown business ourselves, we appreciate how the Enviro team also operates as a family – which can be a different experience than working with larger corporations. A hands-on company, they hire only the very best, most dedicated and creative team members. They’ve been known to hire university graduates right out of school who have their fingers on the pulse of new and emerging market trends, and those who think outside the box in terms of design and function. Ultimately, they love doing business with people, and so do we!
Working in the industry for as long as they have, Enviro knows that building strong relationships with their dealers/customers are so important! Working closely with their team, on behalf of Hubert’s, our team is able to provide input and feedback with regards to design and talk about the technical issues we’ve had, so they can make necessary changes and continuously improve their product offerings.
As dealers, we have a flair for what our customers want, and we really do understand the products in and out. Our showroom is a destination outlet for many high-end clientele, so it’s always been important for us to carry the products that we know our customer will love. Together we strive to always offer top notch knowledge, service and products. We only want the best, and we’re honoured to support other Canadian made businesses, like Enviro, who feel the same!
