A family company dedicated to grandeur

Our story

As a family company, Metalfire started small. Rooted firmly in both Belgian soil and core family values such as integrity, accountability and trust, our company stands for no-nonsense entrepreneurship. Then again, it is our ever burning passion for beauty that leads us to build innovative fireplaces that have an unmistakable air of grandeur. Now, owing to this dedication, Metalfire fireplaces are distributed and enjoyed all over the world – from Sweden to Japan. With the Metalfire development program, we keep our global distributors informed and able to bring the best service possible.

Spreading the warmth of fire

Our mission

We want to create architectural fireplaces that bring more to homes than heat. Through design, craftwork and passion, our creations radiate a certain warmth and ambiance. With our professional management team and growing number of international dealerships, we aim to ignite conversations around the world, far into the future.

Strategy

Metalfire wants to take full control of its future. With a solid long-term “horizon plan” that spans as far as the year 2025, we seek to maximize exclusive partnerships, innovation and the well being of our people. Our professional management team further warrants our enduring continuity and success, founded on three basic pillars.

Respecting people, planet and profit

Sustainability

Valuing community

Treasuring one of our most valuable assets

Planet

Metalfire understands the planet is one our most valuable, but also one of our most delicate resources. We aim to minimize our environmental footprint along the entire value chain, both with smaller interventions such as solar panels and smart lighting, but also with true, groundbreaking innovations in our production processes and products.

Additionally, we see to a sustainable sourcing of our raw materials and their respective supply chains. Our focus is on a long-term, stable supply of high-quality raw materials as well as on the greatest possible transparency and oversight of environmental and social impacts. 

Sustainable growth in financial terms

Profit

Taking care of people and planet would not be possible without safeguarding our own financial continuity. Metalfire’s management aims to leverage our unique position, passion and in-house expertise to achieve durable and global growth, ultimately propelling us into the position of uncontested leader in the architectural fireplaces niche.

A unique appeal

craftmanship

At Metalfire, craftsmanship is our creed. Every day, our vision of extraordinary fireplaces is brought to life by the bare, skilled hands of our craftsmen. It takes as much as eight years for our welders to fully master the independent construction of a Metalfire frame, solely on the basis of a plan of our design team. As a result, every frame bears the personal characteristics of its creator, for a unique appeal that can’t be replicated by automated production processes.

Innovation for now, nature and the future

Research and development

At the Metalfire headquarters, a team comprising our most visionary, creative and knowledgeable people works full-time on meaningful and sometimes bold innovations. This comes to show how dedicated we are to taking on a leader role in the further development of the market. In general, our ambitions can be divided into three segments.

Innovation for

The future

What does the fireplace of the future look like? What will it use as fuel? How will people interact with it? Our innovation team works tirelessly to define an answer to these questions. Only one rule applies here: the more radical and unexpected, the better.

Now

Innovation isn’t just restricted to the distant future. Our team keeps a close eye on current and emerging trends, responding with smaller though meaningful innovations that add immediate value to our products.

Nature

As a company delivering fireplaces all over the world, Metalfire feels a strong responsibility over the environment. This is why we dedicate an important part of our R&D efforts to making both our fireplaces and the processes that create them more efficient and more ecological.
