Our Founders:

Gary Walker and David Scaman, driven by a shared passion for providing top-notch solid fuel solutions, co-founded GD Logs in 2012. Gary’s relocation to West Yorkshire a decade ago led him to establish Swept. www.getswept.co.uk, a HETAS approved chimney sweep business. While he now focuses on Swept, Gary remains keenly interested in the ongoing success of GD Logs.

Sole Leadership:

In the capable hands of David Scaman, GD Logs has thrived and grown. David’s leadership has been instrumental in steering the company toward new heights, consistently achieving milestones that reflect our commitment to excellence.
