World’s largest flat plate collector manufacturers in 2017

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 19, 2018
The 2017 ranking of the world’s largest flat plate collector producers clearly shows the market dominance of Chinese companies. Even second-ranked Greenonetec, an Austrian collector manufacturer, is now majority-owned by the Chinese-based Haier Group. The corporation acquired 51 % of the manufacturer’s shares on 18 May 2017. The largest European flat plate collector producer was heating technology supplier Bosch Thermotechnik, although it remained at a certain distance from the top four. Business at Bosch Thermotechnik suffered from declining solar hot water markets in Germany (-16 %) and Brazil (-18 %). Nearly all the companies outside Germany increased production last year.

ISH 2015: Letter A with or without + Dominates International Heating Fair

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 13, 2015

From 10 to 14 March, energy labels dominated Hall 8 at the ISH 2015 in Frankfurt. “Obviously, we have a competitive advantage with the label,” Uwe Glock, Head of the Management Board of Bosch Thermotechnik, pointed out during the fair’s press conference. Product and package labels could be found at the booths of all boiler manufacturers, which dominated Hall 8 during the international trade fair for The Bathroom Experience, Building, Energy, Air Conditioning Technology and Renewable Energies. The A with or without plus signs was the star of the show, heavily discussed in many B-to-B meetings. The 26th of September 2015, the date when the regulation will come into effect, is keeping the entire heating provider industry busy, regardless of whether a company may be specialised in boilers, heat pumps or renewable heating equipment.
