Evolving as a stove business
Since 1936, the company has been renowned as a range cooker company, however in the past 15 years we have evolved more as cast iron stove company. In fact, Stanley has become synonymous as the No.1 brand of stoves in Ireland and the nation's favourite. All activities from research, design of the stoves, precision engineering to technical services, sales and marketing are all carried out in Waterford.
Why are Stanley Stoves are so popular?
- Stanley stoves popularity is down to stoves being three times more efficient than an open fire and acting as a stunning focal point in any room
- Stoves stoves offer you fuel savings of up to 60% and improve your building energy rating by an average 10% over an open fire.
- Independent research has shown that while anything up to 70% of the heat from an open fire goes straight up the chimney, stoves retain as much as 80% of the heat in the room.
Designed and developed for generations in Waterford, Stanley has been proud to see our more recently developed stoves such as our insert stoves - Cara and Cara + and our next generation of stoves - Reginald, Lismore and Ardmore contribute 100% to incremental grow from 2010 onwards.
