DRU is a modern company that continues to specialise in producing gas heating appliances. It is the largest producer of balanced flue gas fires and wall heaters in Europe and also produces wood and multi-fuel stoves and fires. DRU has been a market leader for more than 260 years, with innovation written into its genes. The company began in 1754 by producing numerous products from molten metal, including cast iron pots and pans.
When natural gas was discovered in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 1960s, DRU switched to producing gas fires and wall heaters, developing the closed combustion system, with no need for a conventional chimney. This system is now commonly used for gas appliances worldwide. In the 21st century, DRU has continued to innovate, with burner systems that produce the most authentic log fire effects in the industry.
