About Wignells

Kev Wignell

Wignells of Melbourne are an Australian family owned and operated company.

Our vision has always been to provide our customers with best products on the market and offering excellent customer service, making us market leaders in solid fuel heating and cooking appliances for over 60 years.

Wignells was started by Kev Wignell, a marine engineer, then an engineer at McRoberstons before setting up his own business with his brother in 1949.

Kev Wignell Trading quickly became a Smith Street institution, full of wood stoves and combustion heaters, pot belly stoves, some harking back to an era even older than the business itself.

The 'Paris' end of Smith Street, as Kev would affectionately called it was an easy destination for people coming into town. "You said Collingwood, they immediately thought of Victoria Park, the Collingwood Football Club, it was so easy for them to find."

Travelling from far and wide, Kev Wignell Trading became a one stop shop for those looking for quality, cost effective, efficient cooking and heating systems with old fashioned friendly customer service.



After 56 years in Smith Street, Wignells moved around the corner, now only a punt kick from Victoria Park, to combine showroom and warehouse under one roof.
