A 100% Belgian company
Our company is firmly rooted in the Belgian soil, and treasures values such as integrity, accountability and trust. It also stands for no-nonsense entrepreneurship. Metalfire has its own machinery with which our fireplaces can be 100% manufactured in our own workshop in Evergem. With an ever-burning passion for beauty that leads us to build innovative fireplaces that have an unmistakable air of grandeur. It’s thanks to this dedication that Metalfire fireplaces are now distributed and enjoyed all over the world. The Metalfire development programme keeps our global distributors informed, and we enable them to offer the best service possible.
Metalfire is taking control of its future. With a solid long-term plan, we aim to foster exclusive partnerships, innovation and the well-being of our people. Our professional management team also guarantees our enduring continuity and success, founded on three major pillars.
Architectural fireplaces are a niche product, but niches can be large when they are seen on a global scale. We want to leverage our skill, experience and unique approach to achieve long-term annual growth, and ultimately to become the uncontested market leader in the global niche of architectural fireplaces. Our growing network of exclusive distributors will open the door to international expansion.
A company is only as strong as its products. Metalfire is dedicated to developing a strong product line of architectural fireplaces, each with its own characteristic attraction. We want to continue to innovate in our products, manufacturing fireplaces that are increasingly unique and attractive, but also more efficient and environmentally friendly.
Continuous improvement and innovation must optimise the efficiency of production processes. Of course, we will always stay close to our roots in craftsmanship, so that our fireplaces retain their characteristic handcrafted look.

Metalfire is a member of a number of business networks. These high-profile organisations can spur us on to new heights.
With more than 90 distributers worldwide and 1000 fireplaces produced every year, we are doing our best to maintain and strengthen our market position.
Respect for planet, people and profit
We are especially grateful to our resources, both in terms of raw materials and the environment and people. After all it’s these resources that make our growing success possible. That’s why we link our economic goals closely with our daily care for the environment, staff and society.
As a business, Metalfire has a firm commitment to people and the community. We make great efforts to create a comfortable and welcoming working environment, not just by providing extensive leisure facilities but also with prompt support. Every year, we hold a large event to bring our people and the community together.
We are not only concerned about our partners, but put just as much energy into sustaining a meaningful relationship with our staff, supporting them comprehensively with materials and training.
Metalfire appreciates that our planet is one of our most valuable, but also one of our most vulnerable, resources. We aim to minimise our environmental footprint along the entire value chain, both with smaller measures such as solar panels and smart lighting, and with genuinely ground-breaking innovations in our production processes and products.
Additionally, we ensure the sustainable sourcing of our raw materials and their respective supply chains. Our focus is on a stable supply of high-quality raw materials in the long-term, and we try as much as possible to ensure the greatest possible transparency and oversight of environmental and social impacts.
It would not be possible to care for people and the environment without safeguarding our own financial continuity. Metalfire’s management aims to rely on our unique position, passion and in-house experience to achieve sustainable global growth, ultimately becoming the uncontested market leader in the architectural fireplace niche.
Research and development
Innovation for now, for nature and for the future
Metalfire’s headquarters employs a team working around the clock on meaningful and sometimes daring innovations. The team consists of our most visionary and creative people, and people with business knowledge. That’s reflected in our commitment to assuming a leading role in the continued development of the market. Our ambitions come under three headings.
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 answer these questions. There’s only one rule: the more radical and unexpected, the better.
Innovation is not restricted to the distant future alone. Our team keeps a close eye on current and emerging trends, responding with smaller but still meaningful innovations that add value to our products right away.
As a worldwide supplier of fireplaces, Metalfire feels a particular responsibility for the environment. This is why we devote much of our R&D effort to making both our fireplaces and their production processes more efficient and more environmentally friendly.
