Originating in 1980 under its founding name Arizona Fasteners Corp, the company began by supplying framing hardware, gun-nails, staples and the fastener needs of the local framing contractors. This original corporation has since grown into 3 separate divisions and two additional manufacturing companies, each serving an important role in the company’s growth, spanning over 3 decades. These separate entities consist of Arizona Fireplaces (2 locations), AF Distributors, AF Steel Fabricators, Modern Flames LLC, and Grand Canyon Gas Logs LLC.
Arizona Fireplaces is a wholesale installing distributor of fireplace equipment to the custom and production home builders, as well as the remodeling contractor. As fireplace products evolved from wood burning to gas and became more complicated, the homebuilders and owners needed a fireplace company that had a highly educated staff to guide them through the sales function installation, final start up, and homeowner orientation. In addition, the Arizona homebuilding industry needed a local supplier, that had large inventories of all types of fireplace products in Phoenix.
Arizona Fireplaces saw the importance to provide a destination to showcase the latest and greatest fireplace brands and models available on the market. This need has resulted in two modern, professional, up to date showrooms that many say are the premier fireplace showrooms in the country. Both locations have over 30 “live-burning” displays and are conveniently located in North Phoenix (101/Cave Creek Rd.) and the other in Phoenix/Tempe area (40th St/Broadway).
Our friendly sales staff will help you determine what works best for your particular home and application. The service and installation team will work closely with the contractor to ensure a proper and safe installation per manufacturer specifications and local codes. We also specialize in gas logs, electric fireplaces, BBQs & supplies, firepits, outdoor heating and an all types of custom fire features.
