Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA) is an international not-for-profit trade association first established in 1980 to represent and promote the interests of the hearth products industry in North America. In 2002, the Hearth Products Association (HPA) merged with the Barbecue Industry Association (BIA) to form HPBA. The association includes manufacturers, retailers, distributors, manufacturers’ representatives, service and installation firms, and other companies and individuals – all having business interests in and related to the hearth, patio, and barbecue products industries. HPBA’s members manufacture, import, distribute, sell, service, and represent products that include:

  • factory-built fireplaces, gas logs, inserts, and accessories
  • wood, pellet, coal, gas and electric stoves
  • barbecues, grills, smokers and accessories
  • patio furniture and accessories
