About Us


The Stovax Heating Group has been dedicated to the design and manufacture of exceptional stoves, fires and fireplaces for 38 years. Today, we are one of the UK’s leading stove and fireplace manufacturers, exporting to over 25 countries worldwide.

Across our wood burning, multi-fuel, gas and electric products, we strive to create the future of fire. Each of our heating products is the result of decades of expert craftsmanship and class-leading innovation - representing the pinnacle of British engineering.

The Stovax Heating Group is proud to be part of the NIBE Stoves group, a market-leading provider of domestic heating products.

History

Based in Exeter, England, Stovax Ltd was established in 1981 to design, manufacture and distribute wood burning stoves and fireside accessories. By 1988, the sister company Gazco Ltd was formed to develop and produce gas and electric versions of Stovax stoves.

Today, 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 that 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. You can find your nearest retailer in the UK and the Republic of Ireland by using the Find a Retailer tool on this website.

The Future

Stovax’s solid fuel products are designed with not only today’s requirements in mind but also those of the future. Our forward-thinking approach ensures we offer both the UK’s and Ireland’s largest range of wood burning and multi-fuel stoves that exceed forthcoming Ecodesign standards.

Our goal is simple; to continue to design stoves and fires for our environment, which harness the full potential of this natural fuel source.

Gazco are making continuing advancements in the development of high efficiency gas fire technology and creating ever more realistic flame-effect electric fires.

Our focus is to not only create pioneering designs that stand the test of time but also to continue to researching alternative technologies that will provide sustainable heating in the years ahead.
