We’re celebrating our 40th anniversary this year, and have been firing imaginations ever since our humble beginnings in 1981. During this time, we’ve made it our mission to lead the way to greener futures, pioneer British design and engineering, and drive world-class fire and stove innovation. Read on to find out more about what makes us a leading fireplace manufacturer.
It is hard to find a more comforting space than by the fireplace – the hearth, as they say, is at the heart of the home. From the traditional appeal of a real wood burning stove or fire to today’s modern approach to fire design, it is clear to see that for the British homeowner, whether city dwelling or country, the fireplace is here to stay.
Stovax & Gazco, based in Exeter, have been manufacturing the very best on the stoves and fireplace market for decades. Celebrating our 40th anniversary this year, we put our success down to our fantastic variety of stoves, fires and fireplaces to suit all kind of home interiors across the three different fuel types. Whether wood burning, multi-fuel, gas or electric, we’ve been inspiring home interiors not only all over the UK, but also around the globe to more than 25 countries.
But it’s not only down to our products. We have invested significantly in South West manufacturing, growing a strong and talented team, and supporting the local economy. To continue to grow and improve our offering to our customers, you may have also heard how we’re looking to consolidate our operations into one large site, and are soon to start work on the build of an exciting new facility at Skypark – the new hub that is planned to host the South West’s most significant Business Park.

Innovative thinking is at the heart of our company values. This allows us to stay at the forefront of the heating industry as market leaders. Thanks to their cutting-edge design, from conception to production, our wood burning and multi-fuel stoves and fires are designed with not only today’s requirements in mind but also those of the future – offering the UK and Republic of Ireland’s largest range of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves that exceed forthcoming 2022 Ecodesign standards. We also offer the largest range of DEFRA Smoke Control Area Exempt wood burners.
For example, we know that the Stovax Huntingdon 30 wood burner has been a household favourite for many years. Now, we have updated this charming stove with the very latest heating technologies so that it not only meets Ecodesign standards, it exceeds them. This attractive wood burner has been refreshed with an entirely new stove engine, smart removable handle, responsive air control, and significantly improved minimum distance to combustibles. Find out more about this traditional Ecodesign wood burning and multi-fuel stove range on our website.
We have always been making advancements in the development of high efficiency gas fire technology. We strive to create the most realistic flames that capture your attention, and are almost indiscernible from a real wood burning fire. The Gazco Reflex 105 multi-sided gas fire, for example, takes gas fire technology to new levels. App control, two and three-sided panoramic views, highly realistic flames and a log bed that mimics a real wood fire – one of the best gas fires to buy in 2021.
We don’t stop at gas technology either. If you have seen our latest electric fires, you’ll know that they all offer an eye-catching focal point, with an array of innovative features that set them apart from other fires on the market.
Take the eStudio electric fire range for example – perfect for TV media walls, available in a variety of sizes, remote control functionality… and much more! You can find out more about Gazco’s eStudio electric fires, and what makes them one of the best electric fires for 2021 on our blog.
Now in our 40th year, we are immensely proud to have launched a new luxury brand – Onyx. Onyx fires and stoves take the established quality and aesthetics of our Stovax and Gazco products to new levels, and in time will cover wood burning, gas and electric fuel types. Launching with this new premium brand is Onyx’s first electric fire range – the Avanti. The Avanti electric fire delivers the pinnacle of electric fire design, and is now available to purchase exclusively from carefully selected retailers.
