About Helmanis & Howell

Helmanis & Howell is a family owned and run business, that’s been established since 1979. And it’s stayed in the family, with founders Jorge Helmanis and Glyn Howell, still involved in the running of the business to this day.

The roots of the company are in heating and plumbing, reinforcing the retailer’s strong background in installing gas fires and electric suites. Selling directly to the general public and occasionally architects andHelmanis & Howell Showroom based in Stockton-on-Tees builders, the retailer operates mainly in the Teesside area, but has installed in properties as far as London by the request of its loyal customer base.

Valor Centre’s Airflame range has always proven a best seller for Helmanis & Howell, its popularity has continued to grow over time. Also proving particularly successful, the Blakely Airflame has too sold well since its launch in 2013, and the team believe that the larger frame and contemporary designed front is what makes this Valor gas fire stand out from the crowd. The most popular model by far has been the Excelsior full depth convector gas fire, which accounts for about 60 per cent of the Teeside retailer’s inset fire sales.
