BUILDING SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES

In 1973 Glen Electric was established by Martin Naughton and four colleagues in Newry, Northern Ireland. The new business commenced manufacturing oil-filled radiators, with just seven employees.

With the acquisition of Dimplex in 1977, a company eight times Glenʼs size, and a brand leader in electric heating, the ambition of the young Glen Dimplex management team was confirmed. Today the Glen Dimplex Group is the undisputed world leader in intelligent electric heating and renewable energy solutions, as well as holding significant global market positions in domestic appliances, cooling and ventilation.

From manufacturing facilities around the globe we serve the domestic and commercial building markets worldwide, with an unrivalled range of intelligent low-carbon solutions for space and water heating. Watch our video to find out more about the development of the Glen Dimplex Group.
