Furniture manufacturer invested in wood waste heater within first year of trading

House of Elliott's newly installed wood waste heater from Wood Waste Technology

A furniture manufacturer that invested in a wood waste heater within the first year of trading has purchased a second one due to business expansion. John Elliott, MD of House of Elliott, a high-end bespoke furniture manufacturer that has been trading for the last seven years, is delighted with his wood waste heaters from Wood Waste Technology, as they are delivering everything promised regarding the provision of free heating and reduction in waste disposal costs.

When House of Elliott, based just outside York, outgrew its original workshop and moved to new premises, it needed an economical source of heating. An investigation on Google led to John Elliott contacting Wood Waste Technology and subsequently purchasing a wood waste heater.

When the company expanded again, to acquire more storage space and create a dedicated paint room, John got back in touch with Wood Waste Technology to order a second wood waste heater for the new area. John explains: “I’d seen the benefits of wood waste heaters in other businesses, so I realised how beneficial they could be in a manufacturing environment, which is why we invested in a wood waste heater in our first year of trading. The heaters can burn all kinds of wood, and give off a nice dry heat, which is perfect for our workshop where we use wood and paint. With its very high ceilings and the roller shutter door opening regularly, our workshop could be very cold in winter, but the wood waste heaters do a great job of keeping the areas warm. They’re very easy to use, and the team at Wood Waste Technology was so helpful and very professional to deal with. I’d definitely recommend them.”

Kurt Cockroft, Managing Director at Wood Waste Technology, says: “Businesses with a significant amount of wood waste can receive payback on their investment in a wood waste heater in as little as 12 months due to the savings that can be made by reducing heating and skip hire bills.”

Wood Waste Technology offers a full range of wood waste heaters, from small hand-fired units to larger fully automatic systems, and offers site survey and design, as well as manufacture, installation and ongoing maintenance. The company also services all types of wood waste heaters and supplies genuine spares up to 60% cheaper than other suppliers. In addition, Wood Waste Technology is the UK’s official distributor for Gross Apparatebau GmbH, a German manufacturer of dependable, precision engineered shredders and briquetters. The company is also a distributor for Putzmaus boiler tube cleaning systems – a powerful but gentle routine maintenance solution that is quick and easy to use and helps to increase boiler efficiency while lowering operating costs.
