Miles Industries Ltd was founded in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada in 1977 by Garry and Barbara Miles. An opportunity arose to sell woodstoves by a company Garry and his father Edgar previously represented in the 1960s. Garry and Barbara enlisted their oldest son Martin and Garry's sister Marilyn to get the project rolling. The objective–to build upon the Miles' family experience in the home heating industry.

In 1984 as volume grew, Miles Industries obtained the exclusive Canadian distributorship for Valor products and the first Canadian Gas Association (CGA) Certified products arrived for sale on a national basis.


Miles Industries is a part of the NIBE Stoves group as of January 1st, 2023. NIBE has acquired 65% of the shares Miles Industries Ltd., with the remaining shares to be acquired by 2026.
