Our expert and experienced team

We have tripled the number of engineers dedicated to heat pump innovation

With different skills in thermal, thermodynamic, aeraulic, acoustic, vibration, simulation, digital and AI technologies, our engineers work at the cutting edge of heat pump innovation.
Around one third of our engineers are based full-time in the Heat Pumps lab, where we perform all the pre-launch tests and quality checks on our products. Our engineers’ expertise ensures we can consistently deliver the best products in the market, offering the most reliable performance, durability and safety. It is key for our team to maintain detailed oversight of all testing and quality control, as it provides our customers with peace of mind and delivers the right product for their needs. We have invested in new climatic and acoustic test rooms, to boost our testing capabilities, and we plan to add more climatic rooms with higher capacity, during 2021.

With these new testing facilities, we are committed to excellence throughout the product cycle, from the first idea to market launch.

We live in a connected world. Let's work together for a sustainable future!

Our key innovations

New tools to make life easier

Our Heat Pumps Competence Centre team is continuously working on new heat pump solutions and features to help installers and end users. 
We know that fitting a heat pump is not easy and requires a high degree of skill and knowledge from our installers. We aim to facilitate the installation and save time for technicians by creating apps and devices to help them during the installation. We also develop apps and digital tools to support our customers, improving accessibility, remote control and efficiency insights, tailored to different user profiles. Developing smartphone apps and digital tools has become part of our daily business, helping our customers control their heating, cooling or water heater easily, wherever they are.

Collaborative, focused and client-oriented

We work in close partnership with gas grid providers, governments and other stakeholders to tackle the complexities of the energy transition.

 Renewable energy sources such as solar and wind are not always available, making it more difficult to keep the grid balanced and maintain a reliable delivery of energy. We develop our products with this in mind.
