How It All Began
The 1970’s brought with it an economic struggle and oil crisis. During these tough times our founder, Roger Hansen, developed a high efficient wood burning fireplace that operated using two separate air flow systems. His design was revolutionary, and thus in 1979, Acucraft Fireplace Systems was born.
“The key to great design is capturing the spirit of the client and the essence of the space.”
Through our innovation, collaboration & investment in technology, Acucraft is able to offer countless fireplace options to meet the needs of any customer. Whether you’re in search of a traditional, modern, wood or gas burning fireplace we collaborate with you to find the perfect solution for your project.
