Welcome to R. E. Smith Company
The R. E. Smith Company... had its humble beginnings in the late 60’s in the garage of Williamsport resident Kermit Smith, where he repaired grills as a hobby-turned-business. Seeing the need for a parts outlet for the new gas grill industry, Kermit’s company was the service source for North central Pennsylvania. Looking ahead to retirement, Kermit sold his little business to Dan and Linell Stabler in 1989 with the prediction that alternative home heating would soon sweep the country. He was right. The company has come a long way since then. In 20 years, his little parts business has grown into the area’s premier decorative heating retailer.
In March of 2014, the R.E. Smith Company went through another change. Daniel Strailey, Curtis Michael and Harold (Butch) Erb purchased the business from Dan and Linell providing them an opportunity to retire and pursue other ventures. Curt and Butch are no strangers to the industry and will continue to provide the same high quality product line and customer service that is second to none.
