It all began in 1976 when a small steel fabrication business started by Wolfgang Schroeter began manufacturing steel railings in Barrie, Ontario, Canada. At that time, no one imagined the incredible future that lay ahead for Wolf Steel Ltd. And eventually …. Continental® Fireplaces.
Since the first wood stove rolled off the production line in 1979, Wolf Steel’s commitment to success was to be distinctive and successful in everything they do. The original stove featured a solid cast iron two-door design and was produced in a one thousand square foot manufacturing facility. In 1981, the first single glass door wood stove was introduced, a first in the industry, using Pyroceram high temperature ceramic glass and a cast iron frame. The first of many milestones for Wolf Steel. Over the next few years, the demand for quality wood stoves grew beyond Ontario’s borders, and representatives throughout Canada and the United States were appointed to facilitate sales.
