Brand Spotlight: Gazco
Are you watching autumn and winter approach and thinking about buying a new gas or electric fire for your home? Then you can’t go wrong with a Gazco fire. For nearly 35 years, Gazco fires have been a mainstay of home heating in the UK. Find out why they’re so popular in this special brand spotlight feature from Direct Fireplaces…
Gazco is a British fireplace brand which can trace its roots back to 1988 when it was established in Exeter.
The brand was set up as a sister company to Stovax Ltd, a company which had built up a strong and established reputation for designing and manufacturing high-quality wood burning stoves.
Given that gas and electricity were becoming much more popular ways of heating the home during the 1980s, Gazco was started with the mission of creating high-quality gas and electric fireplaces that were on a par with Stovax’s wood burning stoves.
It’s a mission which Gazco has certainly accomplished, with Gazco electric and gas fires being found in thousands of homes across the UK.
Today, Gazco continues to design and manufacture the majority of its fires here in the UK, and we’re proud to be an official stockist of the brand’s fires here at Direct Fireplaces.
Note - in addition to making some of the best electric and gas fires, Gazco also produces high-quality electric and gas stoves.
What makes Gazco different?
Gazco really does make strides to stand out from other fire manufacturers. That’s largely thanks to its stated ethos of ‘Creating the future of fire…’
As such, Gazco boasts a range of innovative fires, including:
- Built-in fires.
- Wall-mounted fires.
- Hearth-mounted fires.
- Media wall electric fires.
In addition to its very comprehensive, and innovative range of gas and electric fires, Gazco also takes pains to ensure that its fires are of the highest quality and environmental standards.
A continual focus on product quality
Gazco goes to great lengths to ensure that its fires are of the highest possible quality.
According to their product quality statement, Gazco has, ‘established objectives and targets to drive continual improvement in product performance and customer satisfaction’.
Because of this, whenever you buy a Gazco fireplace, you know you’re getting a fire which has been designed and manufactured to the highest possible quality standards.
Protecting the environment
As we mentioned above, Gazco takes its responsibilities to the environment seriously. It doesn’t just produce fires which are highly efficient and kind to the environment, but they ensure their fires are made in an environmentally-friendly way too.
In particular, Gazco’s environmental policy sets out a commitment to, ‘establish objectives and targets to drive continual improvement in environmental performance, the prevention of pollution and overall energy consumption’.
Aside from proactively reducing their carbon footprint, Gazco also makes efforts to ensure that spare parts for their fires are readily available, making it far easier to prolong the life of your Gazco fire.
Made in Britain
In an age when more and more home appliances are manufactured overseas, Gazco bucks the trend, designing and manufacturing their fires right here in the UK.
As Gazco themselves put it, their fires ‘represent the pinnacle of British engineering’. In fact, their British-made fires have proven so popular, not just in the UK, that they are now exported to over 25 countries worldwide.
So, if you want to buy a fire that supports British jobs and industry, make it a Gazco.
