Winter fuel experts Dizmezs have increased their manufacturing site capabilities, following strong growth in 2020. Already a reliable supplier to the UK market, this significant investment returns higher production capacity, strengthening the supply chain and making their business model even more sustainable for future trading.
Benefitting from the recent investment are WOODENSOUL and GLOWWOOD, two recognised brands that Dizmezs have successfully launched in the UK since they established in 1996.
Sales soar in lockdown
During the pandemic in 2020, Dizmezs experienced a surge in sales with demand rising to 40% more than previous years. The ability to withstand periods of high demand was demonstrated with a staggering 4.5 million more bags of firewood supplied during this period whilst continuing great customer service.
Sales growth hasn’t stopped with an 32% increase in sales during the last 6 months. To help support the recent growth a € 2.5m investment in their production facility has come at the perfect time, with many other suppliers struggling to keep up with market demand. This investment includes new buildings and a new 51 000 sq. ft production unit. Processing has been made more efficient with the latest state-of-the-art custom-made machinery which will deliver not only extra capacity but do so without a large increase in workforce.
From the heart of the forest
Dizmezs are committed to sustainable sourcing of raw materials and source from their doorstep, using local forests. For every 1 tree cut down from a sustainable forest, 8 additional trees are planted in its place.
Dizmezs is also a member of the Woodsure ‘Ready to Burn’ initiative to reduce harmful air pollution. All timber is kiln dried to less than 20% moisture levels ensuring cleaner emissions and a higher burning temperature than timber above 20% moisture levels.
Ready To Burn – READYBLAZE
Also committed to safer sustainable firewood, READYBLAZE, is a new brand developed by Dizmezs. This range marries superior performance with environmentally friendly features such as cleaner, hotter burning and less harmful emissions.
