About HMI Fireplace Shop
In 1973, after being in the medical electronics industry for several years, Norm Buechting moved his family to the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, where he first became involved in the hearth industry. Norm opened a fireplace store in 1975, which catered to builders and retail customers with fireplaces and stucco stone veneer. In 1978, Norm incorporated the HMI Fireplace Shop name and eventually grew to four stores, three of which operate today.
