Products - Osburn
Osburn Manufacturing Inc. was founded by Bob Mills and three
partners in Victoria, British Columbia, in 1979, in response to the
Mr. Mills became sole owner of the company in 1985. In its early
days, the company produced only wood stoves, and in 1980 it became
the first-ever North American manufacturer to make a wood stove in
compliance with Oregon State's strict air emission standards.
The company innovated yet again when it received EPA approval for a
bay window-style wood stove and fireplace insert. The famous Osburn
style was born, and is still present today, leaving its distinctive
mark on many of Osburn's products, including the 1800-2200 series.
For many years, the Osburn 2400 stove, with its 3.2 cubic foot
combustion chamber, was the largest EPA-approved wood stove in the
world. The company began exporting many of its models to the United
States, and later to Australia and New Zealand.
