Paddy Umpleby has acquired Burning Desires Limited from founder and shareholder Sean Treaddell.

The company, which sells bespoke fireplaces and fire appliances to retail and trade customers across the region, was founded by Sean in 1991. Paddy first joined the company as a member of the sales team in 2010.

Paddy said: “I’m thankful to Sean for giving me the opportunity to take over the business which he has put his heart and soul into up over the last three decades. We’ve worked very closely for a good number of years so taking over ownership of the company has felt very natural.

“We have a great, close-knit team here who all keep very high standards, so it will be very much business as usual for our customers and suppliers.”

Sean said: “It’s a pleasure to hand over ownership of the company over to Paddy. He knows the business and the industry inside out which will ensure our customers remain in safe hands.”

Operating from a showroom in Garstang Road, Burning Desires works with architects, developers, interior designers, and homeowners on fireplace projects for new-build homes, period and listed buildings, hotels, restaurants, and public houses.

It has customers across Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Cheshire and the Isle of Man and has also completed projects in central London.

The corporate team at Harrison Drury solicitors advised Paddy on the purchase of the business.
