STOVAX & GAZCO
Who we are
Based in Exeter, England, Stovax Ltd was established in 1981 to design, manufacture and distribute wood burning stoves and fireside accessories. By 1988, a decision was made to diversify into the manufacture of gas-fired versions of Stovax stoves and a separate company, Gazco Ltd was formed to develop and produce them. Today, as sister companies, Stovax and Gazco continue to work very closely together. Each company has constantly developed its product range such that the combined businesses have grown to become one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of stoves, fireplaces and fires, with exports to countries worldwide.
In 2006, Stovax Ltd purchased Yeoman, a long established manufacturer of wood burning stoves which specialised in more rustic, rural styling. The company continues to produce a distinctive and separate range of wood burning, multi-fuel, gas and electric stoves and fires under the Yeoman brand.
Stovax is also the UK and Republic of Ireland distributor for a number of additional fireplaces and stove brands including Dovre,Lotus, Nordpeis & Varde. Gazco is also the UK and Republic of Ireland distributor for Wamsler solid fuel cookers and stoves.
With the depletion of fossil fuels and unprecedented increases in their costs, wood is already being accepted as an economic, renewable and carbon neutral energy source. Stovax high-efficiency stoves and fires will continue to help provide ‘green’ heating for the 21st Century, whilst the company commits itself to researching the alternative technologies that will provide heating in the years ahead. Gazco are making continuing advancements in the development of high efficiency gas fire technology and highly realistic flame-effect electric fires, helping to keep Gazco at the forefront of the market.
