Meet Terry and Lynley

Egmont Leather & Canvas Company Ltd, founded in 1962, became known as Elco for short. When Terry and Lynley Knauf bought the company in 1990, they kept the abbreviated name.

In 2000, Elco expanded into heating, after the distinctive log frontage attracted the attention of Metro Wood Fires. We now sell the Metro Pioneer range of woodfires. Check out their extensive range on display year around! Our staff can help you through choosing the correct model for your situation, guide you through the council consent process, and can recommend a competent plumber to install your chosen fire.

Terry has been in the canvas trade since 1977 and the six staff at Elco brings a wealth of combined experience to the business.
