About A J Wells & Sons Ltd
A J Wells & Sons Ltd, was founded in 1972 and
is a privately owned, family controlled, British company that specialises
in the design and manufacture of high quality stoves; manufactures
vitreous enamel products and imports fair trade tiles and pumice
chimney. Run by second and third generations of the family, we
are dedicated to providing products of enduring design and of the
It all started in 1972, when Alfred Wells and two of his sons,
started a small engineering business in Niton on the Isle of Wight.
In the past thirty years we have grown from our original small
factory of around 1500 sq. ft to our current site of over 50,000
sq. Ft. We have always been keen to provide
local employment on the Isle of Wight and have seen the number
of our employees rise from the original 3 to well over 100. We are very proud of our workforce
who have rewarded us by staying loyal to the company, with many
staff having worked with us for over 20 years. This brings stability
to the business ensuring that pride in the company and the quality
of our products is maintained. The owners of the company are Christians
and Christian values and principles underpin the way we do business
and run the company.
Commitment to our staff is vital as is the commitment to invest
in the latest technology to ensure the highest quality. Over the
years we have installed our own Vitreous Enamelling Plant, CNC
controlled Press Brakes, Robotic Welders and a state of the art
Laser Profiler all of which
allow pin point accuracy resulting
in superior quality. Keeping the manufacture of as many parts as
possible in-house enables us to maintain full production control
to provide our customers with long-lasting products leading the
field technically in both operation and function.
Our Buying Policy
In our quest for the highest quality we source our raw materials
from only the very best companies. We aim to build strong relationships
with our suppliers so that we can be confident in their quality,
to maintain our high standards. We unashamedly buy British wherever
possible. It is our view that it is environmentally unsustainable
to transport heavy materials around the world, on the grounds of
small savings, when the world’s finest materials are available
here in the UK.
Our Commitment to Service
As a privately owned, family company service is of utmost importance
to us. We strive to ensure that all our customers receive the information
and service they deserve.
We have a dedicated customer service team for our Charnwood products,
and all customers in our contract enamel business have dedicated
contacts to ensures any questions can be answered quickly.
Our Environmental Policy
At AJ Wells & Sons Ltd we operate a policy of caring for the
environment in all aspects of the business; from the products we
design, to the way we package them, to the way we transport them,
to the way we deal with disposal of waste products, to the vehicles
we use, to our choice of raw materials and, as we have already
said, from where we choose to buy them. These are just some of
the ways we choose to make what we do as environmentally friendly
as possible. At the heart of the design of the products that we
make, is the attempt to achieve high efficiencies, so that they
will consume less of the earth’s resources in heating your
home. An example of this is our woodburning stoves that use one
of the few fuels that are renewable within our own lifespan, thus
conserving other fuels that are diminishing over the years.
We hope this gives you a sense of who we are as a company, our
individual business websites will give you a better idea of the
products we make and the benefits they bring. Our aim is that by
combining high quality products together with excellent service,
from a company dedicated to looking after its customers, you will
have full confidence in all our products.
