Rasmussen Gas Logs in Dallas, Texas
Four Generations of Rasmussen family members have proudly designed and produced innovative products in Whittier, California.
It was 1907 when Rasmus Rasmussen, a Danish immigrant, opened his blacksmith shop on Philadelphia St. in Whittier, CA. In addition to more traditional blacksmith services, Rasmus quickly developed a sideline business making fancy fireplace tools and screens.
Through the decades the business evolved and changed, Rasmussen Iron Works made everything from truck body parts, to steel buildings, to welding rod handles used to build ships for WWII. After the war, Rasmus’ son, Ted Sr., opened a fireplace retail store in front of the manufacturing shop. Among the items he carried were gas logs.
