PURMO is part of the Rettig ICC Group, one of the world’s largest radiator manufacturers. There are nine other radiator brands within the group including Myson, Radson and Vogel & Noot. Overall, Rettig employs over 4000 people worldwide, produces 10 million units each year and in 2005, had a turnover of €604 million.
PURMO has twelve factories throughout Europe, and the largest is based in Rybnic, Poland where two million units are produced each year. In 2007, a third manufacturing line will be introduced in Rybnic, increasing the manufacturing capacity to 2.6 million units each year. The PURMO factories are the most modern in Europe due to Rettig investing over €100 million in modernisation over the past 5 years. Last year alone, €14 million was invested in the factory in Poland.
In the UK, PURMO operates from Birtley, outside Newcastle, and the radiators are available through over 250 merchants nationwide. A large proportion of PURMO radiators are supplied to the house building sector, as the products are an obvious choice for developers looking for affordable, attractive, high quality heating solutions.
