Richard Sillery – Owner of Fireplace-Fitters.co.uk
Fireplace-Fitters.co.uk is a family business owned and managed by Mr Richard Sillery and specialising in the fitting and servicing of fireplaces, fire surrounds, fires and stoves – gas, solid fuel and electric. We also fit chimney liners and pots and cowls. Our services are available to the general public, manufacturers, retailers (both Internet and showroom based), design companies and building contractors.
We are based in Great Yeldham in Essex from where our fitting teams cover London, Bedford, Berkshire, Cambridge, Essex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Kent, Middlesex Suffolk and Surrey (other areas by request, please contact us to check our availability).
Richard started in the fireplace industry in 1991 as a junior operative at a gas fire manufacturing company in Halstead, Essex. Over the next ten years Richard progressed to a managerial position within the same company. In 2002 he left to establish his own company and after completing his CORGI registration in the same year he formed B&S Installation Services. Richard renamed B&S Installation Services to Fireplace-Fitters.co.uk in 2009 to highlight the leading position of the business in the industry.
Today, in addition to having many satisfied customers who have contacted us via this website, we also work with some of the biggest names in the industry. Our partners include manufacturers such as Gazco and Stovax; retailers like Victorian Fireplaces, Direct Fireplaces, Direct Stoves, Fireplaces R Us, Modern Fireplaces and Fireplace Store Online and design companies and building contractors across the south of England.
We continue to take a leading role in the industry – we have appeared on ITV’s “60 Minute Makeover” twice and we have been asked to appear in various trade journals e.g. the front page feature that Registered Gas Engineer (Gas Safe) ran on us in January 2010.

And in January 2015 we moved to a purpose made office with increased storage, larger yard and a training area with display of installation products. This larger facility means that customers can now call in and talk to us about their installation if they wish to.
