Stovax Ltd was established in 1981, and designed, manufactured and distributed wood burning stoves and fireside accessories. They were originally based in Exeter, England.
By 1988, they began to manufacture gas-fired versions of Stovax stoves, which led to a separate company being formed to develop and produce them. This was Gazco Ltd, and still to this day, the two companies work very closely together, with each company constantly developing their product range. In fact, the combined businesses have grown to become one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of stoves, fireplaces and fires, and export their products to countries all throughout the world.
In 2006, Stovax Ltd purchased Yeoman, who is a long-established manufacturer of wood burning stoves, who specialise in a more rustic and rural styling. They continue to produce a separate range of wood burning, multifuel, gas and electric stoves and fires under this brand.
Stovax is the UK and Republic of Ireland distributor for several additional fireplaces and stove brands, including ‘Dovre’, ‘Lotus’ and ‘Nordpeis’.
