Specflue is celebrating their 25th anniversary. The company was first founded in 1992, and at that time there were only five staff members. The company has expanded since then, and now that they are celebrating their silver year the company employs more than 120 people and has a turnover of over £23 million.
The company has been operating since 1992 under the same values. These ideals include innovation, while providing a high standard of products and delivering great customer service. Specflue is now one of the leading providers of flue, chimney and renewable heat products in the UK.
Specflue is based in Sudbury, Suffolk and has a head office that covers 100,000 sq. ft. When the company started operating in 1992 their workspace measured 4,000 sq. ft. In 2010, the flue and heat product providers opened a new depot in Honiton, Devon in order to provide their services to the west of the country. Their two locations in Honiton and Sudbury means that Specflue can operate for the most southern point up to the Midlands. Specflue also offers their services to locations around the UK outside this area through the use of a number of courier services.
The company’s values have combined with their knowledge of its staff in order to allow the company to succeed. The company offer a range of products that is unrivalled; including pellet stoves and biomass boilers, solar thermal and thermal stores. These renewable heat sources offer builders a simple way to make their developments more sustainable, as well as offering the potential to upgrade homes in order to make them more sustainable.
