A1 Flues sets sights on domestic flue market

A1 Flues

Flue manufacturer A1 Flue Systems has launched an Anglo-Italian company with European stainless-steel giant Expo Inox. The new company is expected to become a £7 million business within three years. The new company, A1 Expo, is aiming to become the UK’s leading supplier of small-diameter flue components and flue liner, supplying stove shops, builders’ merchants and heating engineers.

The company specialises in flue systems from 125 to 200 mm. Products include twin-wall insulated flue systems, single-wall flue systems, cowls, chimney fans, core vents, stove fans and carbon-monoxide detectors.

Director TJ Duncan Moir (pictured left with John Hamnett, also a director) said, ‘A1 Flue Systems is firmly established as a UK market leader in the design, manufacture and installation of commercial and industrial chimney, flue and exhaust systems — but we have long harboured ambitions of being equally dominant in the domestic market. To make a success of it, we needed to partner with an industry heavyweight, and Expo Inox fitted the bill perfectly.

‘It was important to create the new standalone company, which is equally split between A1 Flues and Expo Inox, and to start building a team that is solely focused on achieving the potential of A1 Expo.’
