In 1975, Dan and Ron Shimek had an inspiration for indoor gas fireplaces that changed an industry and became the foundation of Heat-N-Glo®. Brothers Steve and Gerry joined them and the rest (including over 50 patents) is history. But the Shimeks were never ones to dwell on the past. That inspiration led Dan to launch the first company of its kind in 2003: The Outdoor GreatRoom Company™ – a company dedicated to an exciting new concept “the outdoor greatroom.”
