Chesneys was founded nearly 40 years ago by Paul Chesney and is still a family-owned and run business today. Chesneys prides itself on its innovation and product design, investing in an ongoing programme of research and development. As a result, it now boasts the most diverse portfolio of products of any company in the luxury heating sector. These include fireplaces, wood-burning stoves and gas, and electric and ethanol fires. Most recently, Chesneys launched a range of hybrid Outdoor products, which, uniquely, combine a heating and cooking functionality that has worldwide patent protection.
