Hearth Products Controls Company (HPC) was originally a division of The Maddox Company (founded by Dan Maddox) and was incorporated on December 1, 1975. Since then, TMC has been active in the hearth products industry as a manufacturers representative, one-step & two-step distributor, and as a manufacturing division. The HPC division began in 1989; HPC was split off as a separate corporation in 2001. The foundation of the company was built on safety pilot valve, millivolt valve, and remote control gas fire pit kits/repair parts, as well as various other components for the hearth industry. We then diversified our thinking by introducing the Outdoor Fire Products line in 2003 with the manufacturing of fire rings. Today this segment of the business has grown to include high-end electronic ignition fire pits, push-button ignition fire pits, TK Torches, portable fire pits, copper water bowls, outdoor fireplace accessories, fire and water features, and a selection of stainless steel components second to none.
