In 1990 two brothers, Chris a gas service engineer now with over 35 years of experience and Ian, a skilled sheet metal worker, combined their expertise and opened a retail outlet in Liverpool, selling fires made by Ian and then installed by Chris.

Over the years Crystal Fires have worked with the main CE testing houses in the UK for their product development, approvals and licensing and have gone from strength to strength, winning awards on the way for their original and innovative designs.

30 years on and Crystal Fires are one of the market leaders due to an extensive range of contemporary and traditional living flame gas fires, always with the main focus on build quality and product efficiency. This is demonstrated in abundance with the release of the new glass fronted range of fires including the Manhattan , Miami, Boston, Florida,Chicago and Montana gas fires.

Directors quote:

“We have gone from retailing in Liverpool out of a small fireplace showroom to manufacturing in an extensive 30,000 square feet  factory using state of the art machinery to manufacture our gas fires overlooking the historic Aintree racecourse, supplying our fires to retailers nationwide.

Fireplace showrooms like to sell our fires because they know that every single crystal fire has been designed, manufactured, assembled, tested and packed entirely by ourselves in Great Britain and that is why we can confidently offer a five year guarantee.”
