This company is recognised across both the Heating and Bathroom industries as one of the UK's leading independent manufacturers with extensive product ranges, large market share, and a high level of service. This company stands out as a wholly British, family owned business that makes a principle of manufacturing what it sells. Starting with one brand in 1964, they now manage multiple brands including Elgin and Hall, and Broseley Fires enabling them to appeal to the widest range of tastes and market trends. Their continuing growth stems from putting the needs of customers above all else.
