Drawz Stoker Mfg. Co.
In August of 1928, Roy Drawz was tired of shoveling coal so he applied for a patent on the Drawz Stoker. In 1951, needing more room, Drawz Stoker moved to a new location on Highway 83 South of Minot. Shortly thereafter a steel building was added to accommodate more expansion and growth. The building still stands and is across the road from the Gas Stop on South Broadway. Other lines carried were Moncrief furnaces, gas conversion burners, oil burners, Dura-Vent metal gas chimneys and Minneapolis-Honeywell products. Pictured below are people affiliated with Drawz-Stoker
