DRU Fireplaces Canada
Dru fireplaces used to carry many gas fireplaces in Canada about 30 years ago. They started manufacturing since 1760’s in Netherlands. Name of the company is called De Koninklijke Diepenbrock en Reigers of Ulft or, in short, DRU.
It all started out as a blast furnace, producing numerous products from cast iron. Their 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. Their company is now one of the oldest industrial companies in the Netherlands.

The DRU brand is renowned throughout Europe for its contemporary gas fires, functional gas wall heaters and innovative fireplace technology.
The brand is closely associated with the balanced flue system, which allows gas fires to be installed with or without a chimney. This was developed by DRU in the 1960s and is the basis for many thousands of gas appliances today.
Their motto is ‘designed to be different’, which reflects the distinctive designs of its modern gas fires and the innovative technology behind all of its products.
