About Pistolero Design

Pistolero Design is based in the North East of the UK.

Work History

I worked for both small and large manufacturing companies for over 30 years in a wide range of positions. In 2007, I set up my own business, Spirit Fires Ltd designing and manufacturing gas fires, fireplaces and bio ethanol fires that were sold using the Spirit Fire and CVO Fire brand names. This included a factory and two retail showrooms in the UK. There was also a distributor network around Europe and in Australia. The business was run on the basis of a strong business plan, modern systems and procedures to control costs and by designing and developing new CE approved products that were launched on a regular basis. In 2010 I sold the business as a going concern to new owners. Since selling the business I work as a Business Consultant for other companies on product design and business streamlining to reduce costs, grow sales and maximize profits. I also own another business YumaGold Ltd.
