About Us

Bell in association with Calor

We are proud of our links with Calor and have been trading as a Calor dealer since 1956. We have developed a strong relationship with local trades and businesses with whom we have built a reputation for providing a professional and friendly service.

The Calor dealership initially operated from the company’s Gold Street premises, however as sales increased and the business grew, it soon became impossible to operate from the limited space available. In October 1977 the Calor Gas operation moved to the Kingsthorpe site. In the early days, business tended to come from village areas without a mains gas supply. Sales increased in the mid 70’s with the advent of the National Electricity power cuts and Bell were appointed a Main Dealer, responsible for distributing gas to various outlets. In particular, winter heating in factories and the use of Calor gas to operate forklift trucks developed into a major part of sales. This was enhanced in recent years by the increase in demand from mobile catering vans and a boom in outdoor leisure activities such as boating, caravanning and outdoor cooking. Due to our large capacity we also supply gas for catering at local events such as the Northampton Balloon Festival and Silverstone F1 GP.

We stock a comprehensive range of gases including Camping Gaz, propane, butane, bioLPG, barbecue and patio gases. As the main dealer for Calor Gas in Northamptonshire we take regular deliveries from Calor and keep extensive stock to meet all your requirements for leisure and commercial gases, including supply for fork lift trucks. In addition, we carry a full range of accessories, including regulators, barbecue tools and disposable cartridges, and have specialist trained staff on hand to give you all the help and advice you need. We offer a countywide, prompt delivery service for single and multiple gas cylinder orders. Alternatively, we have ample car parking for collections.

The Bell Calor shop is able to provide a one stop shop service for all your Calor needs.
