40 Years of Engineering Excellence

2018 is set to be an exciting year for the Grant team as we celebrate 40 years of providing innovative home heating solutions across the UK and Ireland.

Founded by Stephen Grant in 1978, the company has effectively developed and launched 15 heating products to the marketplace, all of which are designed with quality, efficiency and reliability in mind. Take a look at just some of our many highlights over the years!

1978 – Grant Engineering founded by Stephen Grant. This year also marked the development of our twin pass back boiler which successfully doubled the heat exchanger surface area and delivered a high output for homeowners.

1981 – Grant moved to a purpose built 1,400m2 factory.

1983/4 – The innovative twin pass back boiler created in 1978 led to the production of our first patentable triple pass oil boiler.

1987­ – The first Grant slimline boiler was manufactured – now known as the Euroflame range.

1992 – An additional 10,000 sq. ft. was added to the factory.

1996 – Grant UK was established with 34,000 sq. ft. offices and warehouse in England, accounting for 50% of the boiler market.

2001 – The development of our patented condensing technology which first appeared in the range of Grant Vortex condensing oil boilers. This unique condensing technology still offers some of the highest efficiencies on the market today due to its efficient operations which involve less oil and lower CO2 emissions than traditional boilers.

2008 – The Vortex Combi boiler was awarded a Best Buy from Which? – the first time that an oil boiler has been recognised as a Best Buy Boiler. Later this year, in response to the growing interest in renewable energy, we released our first renewable heating appliances with the launch of Grant solar panels and the extensive range of stainless-steel and copper Grant cylinders.

2016 – In Autumn we launched the revolutionary VortexAir Hybrid which combines the trusted Vortex condensing oil technology with the environmentally-friendly benefits of the Aerona3 inverter driven air source heat pump (ASHP).

2017 ­– The entire range of Vortex condensing oil boilers are awarded a Which? Best Buy – resulting in 63 Best Buys!

2018 – We celebrate our 40th anniversary, with lots of exciting news and innovations to come!

Think Boilers. Think Grant.
