Hargrove is one of the leading manufacturers in their industry. The Hargrove story begins in 1959. In that year, the Hamilton company began producing a line of gas logs under the "Flicker Flame" brand from factories in Costa Mesa, California, and later, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Flicker Flame gas logs were noted for their exceptionally realistic logs, which were molded from the branches of real trees. Those original designs still form the basis of Hargrove's Birch, Classic Oak and Grand Oak log series.
In 1984, the Hargrove family purchased the assets of the company and formed the Hargrove Manufacturing Corporation. Shortly thereafter, production facilities were moved from Oklahoma City to Sand Springs, Oklahoma, near Tulsa, and manufacturing processes were improved to yield greater production efficiency and quality control, while maintaining the careful attention to detail that can only be achieved through handcrafting.
Hargrove Manufacturing Corporation began with a modest production plant, where Gary and Cindy Hargrove themselves produced each log set they sold. As word of Hargrove gas logs spread, the company quickly outgrew the original Sand Springs plant, and another building was built adjacent to it. Since then, the facility has grown to a six building complex of offices and production areas.
Through the years, continual review of materials, processes and technologies have led to improvements in mold making, log formulas, burners and controls, and has increased manufacturing efficiency in virtually every aspect of production, inventory handling and product packaging, yet two simple premises have never changed - to create the finest, most realistic gas logs available, we start with the branches of real trees, and to produce the highest quality products available, we carefully handcraft them.
