LONDON: Following the successful merger of Baxi Group with De Dietrich Remeha in 2009, the Group will now be known as BDR Thermea.

In the UK, BDR Thermea is the largest heating manufacturer, with an extensive range of domestic and commercial boilers, low carbon products, hot water storage cylinders, electric water heating products and fires. The individual brands, such as Baxi, Remeha, Potterton, Main, Heatrae Sadia, Potterton Commercial, Andrews Water Heaters and Valor, are individual market leading brands, and will remain unchanged.

The merger places BDR Thermea as a world leading manufacturer and distributor of innovative heating and hot water systems and services. The Group has a top market position in Western Europe and strong positions in rapidly growing international markets. In total it operates in more than 70 countries worldwide employing over 6400 people.

Mark Kelly, chief executive officer of BDR Thermea UK and Ireland, said: “BDR Thermea’s philosophy is to combine the best of both the former DeDietrich-Remeha Group and Baxi Group.

“We are committed to investing in our people and processes, and will continue to focus on research and development so we can keep delivering reliable and innovative products to our customers, continuously improving performance, environmental friendliness and energy savings.

“The Group will continue to operate in its current structure and individual brands will remain the same. We will continue to offer the same excellent level of support and our award winning service operation will be supporting all brands.”
