Our history starts back in 1975, when Powred Heating and Burner Spares Ltd (PHBS) formed, supplying heating contractors throughout the South West with commercial and industrial heaters, spares and flue systems from our old location in central Bristol.
In 2003, Powred Heating Components (PHC) was formed, following the acquisition of Cardiff-based domestic heating parts specialist Heating Components. PHC and PHBS consolidated 12 months later, enabling us to provide more efficient distribution of domestic and commercial heating spares throughout the South West and Wales.
2008 saw the creation of Firebox Stoves; our sister brand for wood and multi-fuel stoves. Through our local stove showrooms, we supply trade installers and the general public with a large range of high quality, clean-burning stoves, flue and chimney products, stove spares, and fireplace tools and accessories.
In response to customer feedback, in 2009, we opened two new locations: Swansea and Weston-Super-Mare. The latter was another acquisition for PHC; Energy Controls & Spares Ltd (ECS), resulting in us taking on their extensive range of HVAC control products.
2013 saw us commence trading in Swindon, following the purchase of independent heating spares stockist Interflame Ltd. All Interflame staff were retained, further increasing the knowledge and experience within our business.
Our sixth branch opened in Exeter, in 2014. This was our first branch specialising in parts for both heating and cooling systems, leading to air conditioning and refrigeration parts now being stocked in all PHC Parts branches.
In July 2016, we also began trading from Weymouth in Dorset, following our fourth acquisition, this time of the established and well-respected parts and controls stockist Cove Controls Ltd.
We have since gone on to open new branches in Birmingham (Smethwick) (2017), Portsmouth (2019), and Doncaster (2019).
We are very proud of our heritage and values, and especially the knowledge and experience present in the company. We remain fully committed to providing all our customers with exceptional service, every single day.
