Pivot Stove & Heating Co. PTY Ltd

Yunca importers and agents in Australia are a sixth generation Australian company, Pivot Stove & Heating Co PTY Ltd.


The Parker family's venture into stove making began with John James Parker, a bricklayer from Kent, U.K., who arrived in Port Phillip with his family onboard the Grand Trianon in 1857, he immediately set to work establishing Parker & Co., manufacturers of premier cooking ranges, stoves and small items of castings. The Melbourne business continued to flourish and by 1876 one of the John Parker's sons, James Alexander Parker, had moved to Geelong where he set up his own manufacturing business, The Pivot Stove Company.

Today the buisness is run by Greg Parker-Hill (son of Peter and Merril) and wife Tammie who in 2006 took over and expanded with a real focus on emissions and creating standards to reduce the carbon footprint of heating and cooking in Australia and abroad. Further expansion into Melbourne, New Zealand and the United Kingdom occurred.
