Grant UK celebrates 20 years of trading

Published:  14 July, 2016

On 2 July, Grant UK’s staff were welcomed by Paul Wakefield, managing director, to Farleigh House, the home of Bath Rugby Club, to enjoy an anniversary summer party to mark 20 years of trading.

Initially founded in Salisbury, Wiltshire, Grant UK began selling a range of highly efficient oil-fired boilers, namely the Euroflame and Multi-pass ranges. A number of years later in 2002, the company announced its first high efficiency condensing oil boiler to the UK market. The Grant Vortex patented technology is trusted by engineers and the series of awards that these boilers have won speak for themselves.

Following entry into the renewables arena in 2007, its range of products now includes air source heat pumps, condensing biomass boilers and solar thermal systems as well as hot water cylinders and thermal stores.

Most recently, the Grant VortexBlue oil-fired boiler was launched which incorporates low NOx burner technology. Furthermore, the new Grant VortexAir hybrid, which will be available this summer, allows installers and homeowners to benefit from the best of both worlds by combining a VortexBlue oil boiler with the Aeronał inverter driven air source heat pump.

“We are delighted to celebrate this milestone with our loyal and experienced staff as well as Grant Engineering’s founder Stephen Grant, and Niall Fay, Grant’s operations manager and director,” said Anna Wakefield, marketing and corporate communications manager for Grant UK.
