Dudley Hussong, Chairman of the Board, established Kozy Heat® during 1976 in his father's millwork shop in southern Minnesota. The first Kozy Heat was a wood burning fireplace that was created as a more efficient way to heat the shop during the fuel embargo. He then teamed up with a local masonry named Roland Koster. Dudley knew about metal and Roland knew about brick. Together they knew what it took to build a fireplace. The word spread around town and a local contractor later persuaded Hussong to build another, and then another, for local homes. Kozy Heat soon became known as a high-quality, energy-efficient home-heating supplement. Within two years, Kozy Heat was selling fireplaces throughout Minnesota via distribution channels.
Jim Hussong, President, joined his father full time in 1984. The two became a team - Jim concentrating on expanding the sales and marketing division, whereas Dudley remained researching and developing new products. Together they have created distribution and representation nationwide with a full product line of both wood and gas fireplaces.
Throughout the expansion of the company and changes in products, the commitment to quality and efficiency remained constant. Kozy Heat is proud to offer a product based on quality versus quantity.
