United States Stove Company, "Keeping America Warm Since 1869". They are a privately owned company that is proud to announce, they celebrated their 140th birthday in 2009. Although there are some that date their beginning to 1864, we have promoted and expressed our start with the Perry Stove Works Company of Albany, NY. Later, Perry and a Memphis company, Wetter Manufacturer, joined forces and moved the facilities to South Pittsburgh, near the bank of the Tennessee River. It is here they have stayed and continue to grow.
