THE FLAMERS STORY
Flamers Ltd is a family run company in the centre of Ireland. The family has over 60 years experience in the timber industry and they have developed an integrated business model which has allowed them to develop the ‘Flamers’ brand range.
First launched in 2009, Flamers Wood Logs have now been followed into the marketplace by Kindling, Firelogs, Firelighters and Shimada, and distribution continues to grow year on year at significant rates, as does sales through a variety of outlets.
A core value of Flamers Ltd is to offer customers superb products at great value prices. This is reflected perfectly within the ‘Flamers’ range. Products which are very environmentally friendly – smokeless with very low CO2 emissions, recycled timber usage, no Carbon Tax levies – combined with maximum cleanliness and providing very high heat rates – you’ll need 30-40% less fuel than ordinary solid fuel – illustrates the company ethos exactly.
A Key Manager has been co-funded in this company by the European Regional Development Fund and Enterprise Ireland under the Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme 2014-2020. Aims: To recruit a Key Manager who will bring skills into the company that are critical to future growth. Results: The Key Manager commenced employment and is contributing to improvements in company productivity and to changes in output to meet defined market requirements.
Our environment is incredibly important to all aspects of our lives, and it is something that governments across the EU are striving to introduce pro environment policies. Taxation is a key tool in these policies, and in 2003 the Irish Government introduced a Carbon Tax with the intention to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and is part of Ireland’s strategy to support a greener and cleaner environment.
No Carbon Tax applies
Flamers Wood Logs are zero rated – ie No Carbon Tax applies! This can only be described as fantastic news for us, but also wonderful news for people throughout Ireland who depend on solid fuel. Not only are they getting a high heat product but no Carbon Tax applies, so they can save on the double – the environment with a CO2 Neutral fuel and their wallets and purses.
Government Tax is only one aspect of our environmental benefits. Recycled timber, sawdust and off cuts from other parts of our business can now be productively used in our products. Waste that would have previously gone to landfill.

Many people keep their thermostat too high. Check it and if it’s above 20ºC turn it down. Lowering your thermostat by just 1ºC will knock 10% off your heating bill.
Much of the heat loss from a house occurs through the windows. Keep your curtains closed at night, and also ensure that the curtains don’t hang over the radiators.
Close room doors to separate heated from unheated areas of your home, and minimise the area you are heating.
Turn the lights off when leaving a room. Use light bulbs with higher wattages and reduce the number of bulbs in each room.
Switch appliances off rather than leaving them on standby (such as TV’s, computers and video games). This will save up to 20% of your appliances’ energy use.
Make better use of the timers on your immersion or boiler so you can control when the heating comes on and goes off. This means you have heating when and where you want it.
