Bringing Retailers the Best Of British

British Fire Manufacturers is, as the very name suggests, a very British company, exceptionally proud to stand by their 'Crafted in Britain’ statement, which they display visibly in the marketing of all their gas and stove brands.

Manufacturing their appliances in the UK has contributed significantly to the company's growth and reputation as an industry leader and innovator. They know that they bring new products to market faster than competitors as they do not Bringing Retailers the Best Of Britishhave to factor in lengthy transportation time from countries the other side of the world. Research has also confirmed that the British market places more trust in products Made in Britain over those made in the Far East.

Strategically BFM Europe has always had a strong product development programme which supports the belief that both trade and retail customers are always looking for  new products and technologies. Manufacturing in the UK gives greater control over quality standards and consistency.

The company is proud of a loyal work force who take pride in all the products they produce, and also of its support of other indigenous UK companies whose product components they rely on to produce a growing and technologically advanced range of gas heating appliances.

BFM Europe 2A Purpose-Built Facility

BFM designs and manufactures gas fires under six established consumer brands - Kinder, Flavel, Verine, The Collection by Michael Miller, as well as Global and Kohlangaz - as well as their Portway stoves brand.

Design and manufacturing standards are upheld as a result of sustained investment in technology and personnel at their purpose built, state- of-the-art, Staffordshire base which houses the most up-to-date manufacturing, distribution, sales and training facilities in the industry.

This includes an experienced R&D department, as well as a laboratory for testing prototypes and pre-production models allowing them to consistently set new industry standards in efficiency wih the development of premium quality products to deliver major consumer benefits.

A perfect example of a product that has undergone rigorous testing and development is the recently launched Boticelli Slimline Balanced Flue gas fire and surround suite. It's been cleverly designed for easer installation into most wall cavities without the need to build a false chimney breast to accommodate the depth of the engine.

Not only does it look stunning but it features a non-reflective glass front panel which is virtually invisible to the naked eye. The surround is made from Portuguese limestone with integrated down lights operated form the fire's remote control handset.

Product Tested & Certified by BSI

All BFM’s gas appliances comply with BS EN 613:2001 and the European Gas Appliance Directive. In addition they are independently tested, approved and verified by BSI for performance, safety and efficiency.

BSI’s wide-ranging technical expertise and capability of their testing facilities, combined with their broad expertise and knowledge, ensure BFM’s products are rigorously tested with the utmost integrity.

Not all gas fire manufacturers submit their products to BSI testing procedures. BFM views this as an important attribute, setting them apart from their competition, offering retailers a point of differentiation and consumers strong peace of mind.

25 Year GuaranteeExtended Manufacturer Warranties

Well respected by retailers and consumers alike for innovative design, product quality, durability of materials and workmanship, BFM compliments these attributes with the strongest product guarantees within the industry. Products in The Collection by Michael Miller come with a  25 year guarantee whilst Kinder and Verine fires all come with a 15 year guarantee.

Experienced Retailer Network

UK retailers are hand-picked to stock and promote BFM products, receiving in return high standards of sales, after-sales and technical support from the experienced team. An exceptional marketing resource is also on hand with bespoke websites and brochures, also considered to be amongst the best in the industry.

Whilst the company understands the reasons why many independent fireplace and stove retailers now choose to promote and sell their products online they do not support the direct selling of any of their products via retailers’ websites. This is largely due to the fact that the purchase of a gas or solid fuel fire is complex, and the right appliance needs to be chosen to fulfil the varied requirements of each individual customer and their home. All stockists appointed by BFM are fully trained in the features, benefits and specification of each BFM manufactured product and they have the expertise to arrange installation and annual services, things that are not normally offered when products are purchased online.

British values and standards remain at the heart of everything that British Fire Manufacturers offer to the enterprising modern day fireplace retailer who is guaranteed to enjoy a first class level of support.
