In 2007 Business justified moving the FireCraft manufacturing to a new factory. Our workshop in Syston, behind Evans Fireplace Centre, was 4500 sqft and was just too small to meet our needs and was limiting production capacity. We now have more space 14,500 sqft in total.
The factory is in an ideal location, just off the A5 and only 15mins from the M1 and M6. It’s easy for our stockists to visit or send their potential customers, many already have. Since opening we have had people from all over the UK visit us.
We got the factory up and running first with, with new, state of the art machinery, a CNC, a bigger wet saw, dust extractors and drainage systems, drying machines and compressors.
In 2009, once the factory was up and running we concentrated on opening the retail showroom at the site. Above the factory was a large space that used to be offices and storerooms, this space was completely gutted and turned into the showroom you see today. Since we are selling a high quality product, it needed to be of an excellent standard and a lot of work went in to creating a showroom we are very proud of. It is also the only place were you can see the complete range of FireCraft products in one place, including our show pieces such as the Eye, the Flintstone and the Halo.
To complement our range of FireCraft solid stone surrounds the showroom also stocks a wide range of gas & electric fires, multi-fuel burners and accessories. So it is a one-stop shop for all your fireplace needs. Come visit us, you’ll be sure of the warmest welcome!
