Ponderosa Stove Works Inc. was originally owned and operated by Chuck Roberts. Chuck used to manufacturer Ponderosa Stoves and Inserts as well as other products like gates closer for valley home owners. Ponderosa Stoves and Inserts were known for their superior construction, superb performance, and fancy two part door with a Ponderosa Pine sillouette centered between the glassed doors. Chuck and his team manufactured these stoves and inserts for many years. As EPA requirements became more stringent and the cost of certifying the stoves to meet modern emission reduction requirements Chuck decided to close operations and sold the lease on his building to David and Diane Cloyd in February 1980. Chuck retired to Paradise, CA were he still resides today. There are many owners of Ponderosa Stoves here in the central valley and we still get positive feedback on their continued performance today. In some cases polishing the solid brass doors of the higher end Ponderosa Stoves has become an annual habit in upkeep and pride of ownership for their owners.
