The Alaskan Fireplace Company has deep roots with VACUFLO, extending back to 1987 when owner, Ken Doubek, started with H-P Products as the Central United States Sales Manager. Believing so much in the product and recognizing an opportunity in the rapidly expanding market between Chicago and Milwaukee, Ken and his wife Jeanine started a contracting company in 1992 specializing in unique home amenities such as central vacuums and fireplaces.

While seemingly an odd combination, both are installed at about the same time in new construction and both require an understanding of the structural characteristics of home building. VACUFLO fits in well with Alaskan Fireplace's other brands--Heatilator, Heat & Glo and Vermont Castings, all of which offer the best value product lines in their respective categories.
