The company was founded in 1975.  At the time it was named «Robitaille et Fils fer ornemental» and was specialized in crafting fireplace doors, staircases, bannisters and other metal products.  In 1976, Alain Robitaille joined the company as co-owner with the idea to create an outdoor fireplace.  This initiative was the catalyst to the change of orientation of the company.

In the early 1980s, the company’s first wood burning stove was made and the company would henceforth be called J. A. ROBY INC.  In the following years, an important oil crisis began in North America and a strong demand for wood burning heating appliances was felt for several consecutive years, which helped J. A. ROBY INC. take its place in the controlled combustion wood stove market.

For many years now, the company has been mindful of the environment and greenhouse gases.  J. A. ROBY INC. has committed itself to improve its products by using the latest technologies to modernize the combustion of its appliances to make them ecological and clean.  Thanks to original concepts, top-of-the-line techniques, an outstanding customer support and a complete warranty, J. A. ROBY INC. now has a solid reputation in the market. We also design furnaces, wood cook stoves, gas fireplaces and round-the-clock,completely autonomous oil stoves.
