Twin-Star International Sponsors Fire Safety and Prevention Program at the Milagro Center

Delray Beach, FL., Oct. 6, 2015 – In recognition of October’s Fire Safety Month, Twin-Star International, known for their ClassicFlame electric fireplaces and Duraflame electric heaters, organized a Fire Safety Day at the Milagro Center, an arts and education school for children in Delray Beach. Twin-Star partnered with the firefighters at the local Delray Beach Fire Department who taught fire safety tips and demonstrated their fire equipment for the students.

To thank the firefighters for their time, Twin-Star volunteers helped the children create fire safety posters for them to display at the firehouse. “We enjoy working with the students at the Milagro Center,” commented Lauren Thiessen, Twin-Star’s communications and media specialist. “Hopefully they will share what they learned about fire safety awareness with their families and it will save a life some day or inspire them to become firefighters when they grow up.”

The Milagro Center is an education center whose mission is to enrich children’s lives through cultural arts, academic support and living values, benefiting the children served and their families, as well as the community.  The center currently serves 40-50 elementary school-aged children and 20 teens on-site daily, plus an additional 150 individuals annually through their ARTreach program.  The main objective of their program is to improve the overall performance and futures of the children and families whose lives they touch empowering them to reach their highest potentials and rise above their circumstances.

Delray Beach, Florida, September 25, 2015 –The Farmer’s Almanac 2016 Winter Outlook predicts another wet, chilly, cold and snowy winter for much of the country, with a great deal of locations exceeding snowfall averages. Twin-Star International is ready for blustery winter déjà vu.

“In preparation for another cold and snowy winter we have filled our Twin-Star International warehouses with ClassicFlame and ChimneyFree electric fireplaces, as well as Duraflame and PowerHeat electric heaters so our retailers will have plenty of inventory to stock their shelves during the upcoming cold seasons,” stated Marc Sculler, co-president of Twin-Star International. “By the pallet or by the container, our domestic shipping program meets the needs of all size retailers and quickly ships directly to their door.”

The order must include three items that will ship on one pallet. Electric fireplace mantels must be ordered with an insert to be considered one item for this program.

Don’t have room to store large quantities of our products? Twin-Star also offers drop-ship programs on over 300 items from our domestic inventory to anywhere in the contiguous United States.

The Twin-Star International electric fireplace line-up includes unique mantels with electric fireplace inserts, space-saving home entertainment media consoles with electric fireplace inserts and built-in Bluetooth® speakers, as well as contemporary wall mount electric fireplaces, all of which can efficiently provide supplemental heat for rooms from 400 sq. ft. to 1000 sq. ft.

Twin-Star Home Furnishings Announces a Realigning of Their Corporate Brands

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., July 22, 2015 – With the purchase of Bell’O International Corporation last Fall, Twin-Star Home Furnishings® has announced that they are realigning their corporate brand offerings by absorbing the Tresanti® brand into the Bell’O® brand furniture line. All furniture with electric fireplaces will now be under the ClassicFlame® brand in the furniture channel, and under the Bell’O® brand in the consumer electronics channel.

According to Marc Sculler, co-president of Twin-Star Home Furnishings, “as we merged the Bell’O products with the Twin-Star products we decided to simplify and strengthen our brand strategy by classifying all electric fireplace home products under the ClassicFlame® brand and all non-electric fireplace products under the Bell’O® brand. Therefore, non-fireplace home entertainment, home office, occasional, kitchen islands, wine bars, curios, and beds will be branded Bell’O, while all furniture with an electric fireplace will be branded as ClassicFlame. The Twin-Star Home brand of electric stoves, log sets, and heaters will now be branded Powerheat®. Duraflame®, and ChimneyFree® are the only exceptions to the rebranding and will continue as they are.”

“The decision to purchase Bell’O last fall has helped Twin-Star to expand their offerings into new markets while keeping a pulse on the latest trends and consumer demands,” stated Pete Harper, co-president and CFO of Twin-Star. “The Bell’O brand has always been a strong, well-recognized, quality brand, and we wanted our customers to be able to take full advantage of the Bell’O brand. Our plan for the future is to continue to offer innovative forward-thinking designs for a significant value with both the ClassicFlame and Bell’O family of brands.”

Twin-Star Home Furnishings announced the acquisition of the Bell’O International Corporation on October 13, 2014. More details about that announcement can be found at www.twinstarhome.com.
