Arizona Fasteners Corp began as a small start-up family business by founders Don and Debbie Richardson.
Our journey began with selling gun nails, staples, and framing hardware to the framing contractors. It didn’t take long before we realized there were more products that could be supplied to the construction industry during this framing stage. Because of Don's close ties with the top builders, and the fact that house-framing and fireplace installation occur simultaneously, it was this natural (but not obvious) connection that helped push Arizona Fasteners Corp to quickly become better known as Arizona Fireplaces in the late ‘80’s.
We have three local showrooms specifically designed for designers and builders alike to send their clients to see the most current, innovative fireplace products available. Whether the design requires a traditional wood burning fireplace with gas logs or the large linear direct vent accompanied with a big screen TV above it, showroom visitors will see them all working in live burning displays. When gas is not available, Modern Flames and other electric linear fireplaces demo as a great option. Outdoor BBQs, grills, smokers and accessories are also available to demo and we’ve found that customers appreciate the side-by-side comparison as they share their outdoor kitchen vision with our staff.
The intention to build a fireplace company centralized and warehoused in one of the hottest, driest states in the nation, came from the desire to create a sustainable business and setting the intention to become one of the most successful businesses in the state. The intention still stands today and each day we remind ourselves – we can’t rest on our laurels. Each day brings new challenges and solutions – technology and innovation and more happy customers – that’s what drives us.
And now, we turn toward the future: An online store designed for YOU - the customer. No matter where you are or what time of day. Whether you're a designer or a weekend You-Tube inspired renovator, we have the thousands of fire-centric products that you've been looking for.
It is with humility and gratitude that we realize our place in the industry. We won’t forget our humble beginnings as it is the foundation upon which we built the culture inside Arizona Fireplaces and its related companies. We conduct business and
treat everyone we engage with – our employees, clients & customers, vendors, and manufacturers, etc. — with a willingness to serve, to be honorable in all that we do and to always do the right thing. Whether large or small, these values cannot and
will not change.
