About the owner

Hearth Business is a Michigan-based professional manufacturers representative firm.  We specialize in representing Arctic Spas and Original Juan BBQ Sauces.  We are  operated by me, Bob Nurmikko.  The business is dedicated to helping retailers obtain the best products available and helping them operate their business at peak performance. The product lines we represent are products which are the best on the market.   We would  like the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your business and how our products can help you achieve greater success.

Let me also tell you a little about me personally.  I owned and operated a retail fireplace, grill, and hot tub store for over 10 years.  Prior to that I worked as a sales representative for a wholesaler working with fireplaces, grills,  heating & cooling equipment.  I also did two years for that wholesaler as their Marketing Director.   I’ve also held the position of Vice President for Meritor Credit/ Ford Motor Credit where I ran the wholesale finance business for three states buying and selling third party paper.

I have a radio program called “The Grillin’ Guys” that is broadcast in Grand Rapids over Sports 107.3.  This show is all fun and helps people become better grillers and also teaching paring of beers and wine.

My hobbies include competitive grilling, deer hunting, both bow and rifle hunting, fishing, camping, golfing, and hot tubbing. My family includes my beautiful wife and 5 wonderful children.    As you can imagine, they keep me very busy when I’m not working!

I have a strong faith in God and owe it all to him.
