A little bit about Mountain Flame:
It was in Hollywood-fashion Catskill-Mountain style that Brian and Marcia Olenych literally packed up all of their belongings in a 1963 pickup truck and moved from Newark, NY to the Catskills in 1978.
Brian was a recent graduate of Delhi College and both had fallen in love with the area. It was decided, the Catskill Mountains would be their new home. "Brian became a chimney-sweep and we decided to see if we could build a business," Marcia recalled nostalgically.
The chimney cleaning business steadily grew, but it was an idea from a customer that moved the Olenych’s lives into a newer and more environmentally friendly direction. In the course of a conversation, the homeowner showed Brian an article about "radiant heating fireplaces" built from brick. The idea was immediately appealing and a short-time later, Brian was building such a fireplace in the couple's house. By early 1980, Mountain Flame was established.
In the early years the company specialized in brick and tile heaters. Brian and Marcia constructed a workshop and warehouse near their home. They soon added a small showroom in which to display a few of their soapstone offerings. By 1995 they had significantly expanded the showroom. Then in 2003 they bought there own place in Arkville NY and built a custom 2000 sq. ft . showroom. There they sell stylish, efficient and affordable wood, gas, electic and pellet stoves and fireplaces.
