A SHEFFIELD firm that can trace its history back around 220 years is planning to capitalise on consumers’ attempts to save on energy costs with a redesign of a traditional solid fuel heater.

Chapeltown-based TR Engineering, which rose from the ashes of Trianco Heating Products last year, says people are turning back to solid fuel for their heating and hot water requirements, so it has given its Trianco TRH Roomheater a facelift, to give it a more contemporary and attractive look.

Following its resurrection last year, the company, now under the leadership of former production director Peter Beighton, moved into Trianco’s factory on Thorncliffe Business Park, with support from the Park’s owners, Mountcity Investments, which also became TR’s major shareholder.

Trianco was originally part of the Newton Chambers group which was founded in Chapeltown in 1789, based on the site now occupied by Thorncliffe Business Park, and became one of England’s largest industrial businesses.
