An Introduction to Vaillant
As UK Managing Director I am truly proud of the Vaillant brand. For more than 140 years, Vaillant has been setting the standards in the heating market, creating products that have revolutionised the industry, from water heaters in the early 1900’s, to pioneering the ‘combi’ boiler over 35 years ago.
Today we are as proud to be leading the way in renewable technologies, developing systems which utilise sustainable sources of energy. This enables you to enjoy simple, healthy and energy saving solutions for your heating, and hot water needs.
As one of Europe’s leading heating technology manufacturers, ‘thinking ahead’ is a culture which is embraced throughout our business. Our products feature high energy efficiency ratings and low emissions, and come with an enviable reputation for performance, quality and reliability.
Our constant drive to provide leading levels of customer service and training support helps to demonstrate why our customers continually recommend Vaillant – the ultimate endorsement any brand could ask for.

The Vaillant Group has a growing focus on products and systems that use renewable energy. There is a growing demand for these products across Europe, and the focus of the Group in this area relates strongly to heat pumps, which utilise the heat from the earth or the ambient air, and solar thermal systems. The development of Hybrid systems which combine renewable energies with heating appliances to create highly efficient and intelligent systems, is also a key focus area for the business.
As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of environment-friendly heating and air-conditioning technology, sustainability plays an integral role in the Vaillant Group’s activities. Home and world climate are inseparable and modern heating technology can today make an important contribution to achieving climate protection targets. In the UK alone, replacing an old heating system with a new high efficiency boiler can save more than 30 % of energy a year, and reduce CO2 emissions by a corresponding 30%. Sustainable heating is central to the Vaillant Group and its operation.
