Gearing up for growth

The group has a strong manufacturing culture as well as a mind-set that focuses strategy on people.  With an eye towards the future and backed by their experience, they have been able to evolve and grow by constantly expanding their skills.

Today, Groupe Atlantic is made up of twelve strategic and complementary brands that create thermal comfort solutions in four areas: Heating, Hot water, Air conditioning & Ventilation.  Headquartered in Hull, Groupe Atlantic’s UK business includes leading UK brands such as Ideal Boilers, Ideal Commercial, Keston and Hamworthy.
