Who we are


PDS was founded in the mid-1990s by staff of the Bellerive Foundation, a Swiss NGO that pioneered fuel efficiency and environmental education in schools.

Having launched a range of cutting edge stoves into the East African market, Bellerive closed its regional programme and let the private sector take over. At least ten companies sprang up marketing institutional wood-stoves, some of which survive today. PDS was one of those companies and is still run by ex-Bellerive staff.

We adhere to original Bellerive quality standards, allowing us to continue using the Bellerive name and logo. We pride ourselves on quality, durability and reliability, and have been in the market longer than any other company providing equipment, training, spare parts and servicing.
