Grill manufacturer changes name

Monessen Hearth Systems Co., a manufacturer of outdoor grills, fireplaces and other heating products, has changed its names to Vermont Castings Group. Under the new name, the company will continue to grow and support its four brands: Vermont Castings, Majestic, Monessen and Ambient Technologies.

“Changing our name will help us leverage the heritage of our iconic Vermont Castings brand to generate growth for our full portfolio of industry leading brands and product lines,” said Dan Clifford, president and CEO of Vermont Castings Group. “We were green long before green was in, and we are proud that our products are manufactured in the USA.”

The overall structure, size and organization of the company remain the same, with headquarters remaining in Paris, Ky. No personnel changes are expected as a result of the corporate name change, according to the announcement.

Vermont Castings Group is a supplier of hearth and grill products throughout North and South America, Asia and Europe. Under its four brands, the company offers full line of direct vent, natural vent, vent-free, wood-burning and electric fireplaces, inserts, log sets and stoves, as well as outdoor grills and heating products.
