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, and a selection of stainless steel components second to none.
HPC also designs custom fire features and their control systems of any shape or size for residential or commercial applications. These range from 2 feet to 30 feet wide, from 50 thousand to 3 million Btu fire features found at large venues throughout the country including casinos, resorts, and restaurants.
We are located in Dayton, Ohio at our facility that houses the manufacturing, warehouse & of course the always helpful office staff. We have a very diverse, experienced, and knowledgeable group of Sales Reps throughout the U.S. & Canada that cover every state & region. We have 1,400 distributors & retailers in North America in numerous industries including hearth, landscape, pool & spa, outdoor kitchen, patio furniture, and outdoor lighting just to name a few.

Our outdoor line, introduced in 2003, now includes custom and off-the-shelf, fully assembled fire and water features for commercial and residential applications that are as visually spectacular as they are scientifically sound.
