Stuv – technical excellence

Date: 24 May 2012

In 1983, Stûv was made up of just two men, Gérard Pitance and Benoît Lafontaine, who decided to join forces to develop and produce an exceptional wood stove – the current Stûv 60 – was designed by Gérard Pitance (professional designer). They subcontracted the production of the components and focused on assembly and installation.

Their capital was creativity and motivation
Start-ups take time, but the company gradually developed, acquiring equipment along the way, increasing its workforce and constantly creating new stove designs.

Stûv employs 120 people, produces 15 000 stoves a year and exports 70% of its production throughout Europe.

In 2006, the company set up the production of stoves in a new 5 000 m2 unit at its site in Bois-de-Villers, near Namur in Belgium. The components are manufactured by subcontractors using state-of-the-art equipment, mainly in Belgium. Assembly, painting, adjustments and quality control are carried out at Bois-de-Villers.

In 2008, a new 3 000 m2 extension in Floreffe became the home of the Research & Development department, the workshop for creating prototypes and the production of cladding
