Dan Binzer, Founder of Montigo/Canadian Heating Products, Dies

Dan Binzer, founder of Montigo/ Canadian Heating Products, died on March 11. Binzer began building the company we now know as Montigo in the early 1970s. Ever the creative inventor, Binzer’s innovations changed the landscape of the hearth industry. An intensely private man, he never wanted to be the face of the company he built, but he touched many lives throughout the years and was widely respected throughout the hearth industry.

Although Binzer sold the company in June 2016, he remained involved in product design until he officially retired in late 2019. Product development was the part of the business that Dan loved.
