A Henlow business is delighted to announce the expansion of its management team after a successful first year of trading during the pandemic.

Solution Fires has welcomed product design manager Peter Gregory to the team, who is an accomplished industrial designer and design manager with over 20 years’ experience.

Peter will be working closely with the Solution Fires team to help develop existing and new Solution products, whilst providing consumer insight and feedback, analysis of trends in the market and technical expertise.

Peter said: “I am delighted to be working with the Solution Fires team to develop ground breaking innovative, electric fire products. We are a forward-thinking team and we already have some exciting ideas in the pipeline.”

Solution Fires, based in Bedfordshire, launched just over a year ago, and managed to navigate through the pandemic as people turned to home renovations, including the installation of media walls combining large flatscreen televisions and inset fireplaces, rather than holidays abroad.

Andy Hitchman, managing director said: “It is an exciting time for Solution Fires and we are delighted to have Peter join the team. He has a deep knowledge of industrial and product design and vast experience in our sector. It has been a tough year due to the pandemic and now that we are coming out the other side, we are excited to continue to grow our brand and develop the best, most innovative electric fires in the UK.

"Solution Fires have been designed and manufactured with optimal controllability of heat, light and sound as the critical elements. Controllable from your handset, via Alexa or through the app on your smart phone or watch, you can customise your fireplace to suit your individual taste. No electric fire, currently on the market, has the level of product features or attention to detail that solution fires have as standard, supported by a high level of genuine customer service."
