History of Dru Fires
Back on the 17th May 1754, a sales contract for the building of a new blast furnace was signed between Johan Baptist van den Bergh and some local entrepreneurs in Ulft, the Netherlands. This project heralded the start of a company that is still going strong to this day. The company is called De Koninklijke Diepenbrock en Reigers of Ulft or, in short, DRU.
DRU started out as a blast furnace, producing numerous products from cast iron. DRU pots and pans are still well known today. When natural gas was discovered in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 1960s, DRU switched to producing gas fires and wall heaters. DRU is now one of the oldest industrial companies in the Netherlands. ￼
In 1999 DRU relocated from its original home in Ulft to Duiven. The buildings in Ulft, which form part of our industrial heritage, have now been largely renovated and accommodate the “DRU factory” where culture and business come together. DRU has operations in 3 countries and a dealership network that spans Europe and beyond. On its 250th anniversary, DRU was awarded the prestigious designation of ‘Hofleverancier’ or a Supplier to the Royal Dutch Court.
Drugasar in the UK Drugasar was founded in Manchester in 1975 as the UK distributor for DRU functional heating products. It became a fully owned subsidiary of DRU in 2003, and now distributes gas fires, wood and multi-fuel stoves and gas wall heaters under the DRU, Dik Geurts and Spartherm brands. Drugasar employs an experienced team of sales consultants, technical, marketing and back office staff to support its national network of DRU approved fireplace retailers and gas appliance installers.
Since its inception, Drugasar has supplied gas fires and wood stoves to the public through its dealer network.
In addition, it has provided gas heating systems to many thousands of churches, schools, local authorities, social housing, offices, industrial premises, leisure locations and many other diverse organisations.
