Elmira Stove Works got its start when one of Tom Hendrick’s suppliers threw in the towel. He’d been selling wood-burning Findlay Oval cookstoves to the Mennonite community near Elmira, his hometown in Ontario. Tom wanted the Ottawa stove supplier to stay in business, but the supplier refused. “So Tom bought all of the tooling and parts for the Findlay Oval,” says Tony Dowling, Elmira’s vice president of sales and marketing. “He loaded up two tractor-trailers and brought everything back to a chicken barn here in Elmira.”
