About Us

The Beginnings

When the lumber industry was at a low point in the early 1980’s, Dave Wells and Al Breckel began exploring new options for heater stoves and home heating. In an industry polluted by downsizing, Dave and Al set out on their own to try their luck at building pellet stoves . Quitting their positions in the lumber industry, Dave and Al went full force into creating something special. Using their Eugene, Oregon homes as their launching pad, their results gave us the beginnings of what we know today as Breckwell stoves. In the spring of 1987, Dave and Al built and tested the first pellet stove insert and gave it the most appropriate name, Breckwell, combining the two founders last names.


Evolution To Industry Leader

In March of 1988, Breckwell moved under the umbrella of National Steelcrafters. With humble beginnings for two lumber industry professionals, Breckwell has evolved into a solid company with a steadfast commitment in providing the best pellet, wood, and gas stoves available.

Year after year, Breckwell provides exceptional heat at an outstanding value.
