In 1979, Dane Harman was determined to reduce his family’s high electric bills. An experienced welder with an eye for architecture, Dane designed and built a wood stove to heat his home. It worked so well, neighbors asked him to build one for them, too. Dane agreed, and was soon overwhelmed with orders. He had outgrown his garage and couldn’t keep up with production. This flux in demand drove him to form the Harman Stove Company. Today, Harman holds several patents and award-winning technologies.
Dane’s inspiration was based around creating superior stoves. Superlative craftsmanship, advanced technology, easy operation and unique options artfully blend into every model—and solidify Harman as the industry leader in home heating solutions.
Based in Halifax, PA, the company produces and manufactures more than 36 models of stoves, inserts and central heating units burning wood, coal, pellets, corn and other alternative biomass fuels. In 2007, Hearth & Home Technologies, Inc. (HHT), the largest producer and manufacturer of fireplaces and hearth products in the world acquired Harman, which helped the latter expand internationally.
