Vince Volpe (President & Founder)
Inspired by his personal appreciation for technical design and his diverse experience as an entrepreneur, Vince began his custom coach building career in 1975 cutting off the roofs of new cars making them into convertibles, then stretching a corvette to become a one of a kind roadster/station wagon to taking delivery of new vehicles from Ford Canada to be converted to custom travel vans with uniquely designed exterior paint work and then shipped to waiting customers all over the country.
Vince went on to acquire his first fireplace company in 1987 and is well known in the industry as a fireplace design technical expert. Since that time the company has grown from a retail distributor of domestic fireplace brands to a full custom design build studio. Vince now works directly with some of the top Custom Home Builders, Interior Design Firms and Architects throughout North America, consulting on and executing design/ build projects.
