Leisure Line New Ownership

PostBy: Matthaus On: Fri Oct 30, 2009 4:14 pm

Hello fellow forum members, as has already been discussed elsewhere, Flyer5 (Dave) and I are the new owners of Leisure Line Stove Company. With that purchase comes a very big responsibility (not to mention loans! :lol: ). Jerry Steward started the company from scratch and over the past 13 years has created a product line and brand that is quality and customer service. No other manufacturer has provided the level of follow through and personal attention to detail.
We view this new job as a responsibility and duty to carry on what Jerry started by serving our customers and dealers with the same attention to detail and care. We humbly start our new role and look forward to serving all of you! :D

Just remember ! A business is like a wheel barrow.
If you don't grab the handles and push, it goes nowhere.

Good luck in your new venture. I think you've made
a wise choice.

OMG, way to go!!! I am dumb founded. My one friend has a econo it's basic, simple to operate, and gets the job done for him very nicely. He no longer uses electric ceiling heat nor the small propane stove he had to cut back on the electric use, nope just the nice little coal stove.
Again, Just Awesome!!!!

What are you guys going to with all the old treasures you have found? Having a yard sale? :P :?

There won't be much free time to play at home when you are supporting a fine company and perhaps expanding it's line of stoves. PLEASE don't call any hydronic units furnaces! It will take another 39 years to educate the public so that the confusion will end!

Is Warren Buffet looking over your shoulder?

Best wishes to you and your families because this isn't as much fun as it is work. Thankfully, you are both workers, so don't let the golf game take over the needs of the Stoker Stoves you are making.

:pepsi: :flex: :eek2: :yes: :dancing: :clap: :ugeek:
