Gearing up for growth
In 2015 Groupe Atlantic acquired Hull based Ideal Heating, recognising the quality of their products and their place not only in the UK market but also in the European market. Since then, there has been significant investment in the Hull site to enable an increase in production capacity; they have expanded the R&D facilities and modernised and improved manufacturing techniques. 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 Heating, Ideal Commercial, Keston and Hamworthy.
