1978 to 2018 Forty Years of TPFay.

2018 is a big year for TPFay (Kirkby) Limited as we’ve reached the impressive milestone of 40 years in business. We were incorporated on 27 July 1978.

Certificate of Incorporation

Over the last four decades we may have come a very long way from our humble beginnings.The business was founded by Terry Fay, manufacturing in his garage, accompanied by his father Peter.

Terry and Peter (TPFay) began by purchasing elements manufactured by others and custom forming and assembling them to bespoke designs and repairs of existing heater units. With stock stored in all corners of the house, including the loft, the whole family was always always closely involved with the business, day and night. The dining room was used as the office, even the kitchen oven was used to dry elements before sealing.

Our present 12,000 square foot facility couldn’t be more different! We now have purpose built production to manufacture our own heating elements from scratch.

A long and eventful journey, but we are still located next to the house where it all started.

In our 40 years of trading, we have always worked hard to ensure our products stay at the forefront of the market and put this success down to a combination of innovative design, technical and delivery services, developed with our customers in mind.

We continue to invest time and money to improve our products and services to make the best products for each customer and their particular requirement.
