Don Richardson

Don Richardson is the Founder & CEO of Arizona Fireplaces, an Arizona-privately held family retailer that sells hearth products to the entire southwest including Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, California, Utah, Texas, and Oklahoma. Arizona Fireplaces also completes online order fulfilment for the largest retailers in the industry.

Don’s journey began with selling gun nails, staples, and framing hardware to contractors. He revolutionized the use of nail guns by initiating a standardized angle of 22 degrees of the nail strip, lowering the cost of gun nails to the framer. Ever the entrepreneur, Don realized he could sell more products during the framing phase. Close ties with top builders and the natural progression of house framing and fireplace installation helped to evolve Arizona Fasteners into Arizona Fireplaces.

Don’s achievements include two state-of-the-art showrooms that were built with designers, builders, and their clients in mind. Both locations host an engaging live burn view of the most current fireplace products available anywhere in the US including gas and electric fireplaces, fire tables, fire features, and gas logs. The showrooms also features BBQs, accessories, and a sales team that is ready to help transform your house into a home from the inside out.

Under Don’s leadership and management, Arizona Fireplaces continues to thrive over 40 years later!
