Napoleon® Wins Two Prestigious Vesta Awards at HPBExpo

Atlanta, GA – The Napoleon® brand is a leader in the home comfort industry and is well known for creating innovative products for their Fireplace, Gourmet Grill and HVAC divisions.

On March 2nd at the HPBExpo Vesta Awards in Atlanta Georgia, Napoleon’s HMF200 and 9600 Wood/Gas Furnace Combination was honored with winning the Central Heating Systems Category Award and went on to win the prestigious Daniel J. Melcon Award for Best-in-Show – Hearth Products.

The HMF200/9600 Combo Furnace won for its industry first design, green technology and fuel saving capabilities. When the fire in the wood furnace dies down, a second thermostat calls for heat and the gas furnace starts. As an added bonus, the ultra efficient gas furnace also features a DC motor that can save up to 80% on electricity bills. Napoleon® manufactures both the wood and gas furnaces in their Barrie, Ontario facility and unlike other manufacturers, the entire combination is backed by a warranty as a system – another first in the industry.

The Vesta Awards were created to recognize and honor companies for their innovation in product design and technology in the Hearth and Patio Industry.

About Napoleon® Fireplaces and Grills
It all began in 1976 when a small steel fabrication business launched by Wolfgang Schroeter started manufacturing steel railings in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. At that time, no one could imagine the incredible future that lay ahead for Wolf Steel Ltd. and eventually Napoleon® Fireplaces and Napoleon® Gourmet Grills. Since the first wood stove rolled off the production line over 35 years ago, Wolf Steel’s commitment was to be distinctive and successful in everything they do. Napoleon’s commitment to producing quality products combined with honest, reliable service has proven to be a successful framework to ensuring the continued rapid growth of the company. Napoleon® is an ISO9001 - 2008 registered company and now operates with 750,000+ square feet of manufacturing space and employs over 750 associates. Napoleon® is North America’s largest privately owned manufacturer of quality wood and gas fireplaces (inserts and stoves), gourmet gas and charcoal grills, outdoor living products, waterfalls and a complete line of HVAC equipment.
