Origin and Future

Board of directors GDTS

We cool, heat and ventilate the future. Powered by electricity!
Glen Dimplex Thermal Solutions is a new brand. It brings together what belongs together: heating and cooling expertise, employed in intelligent and maximally efficient system solutions – whether it’s for managing temperature and ventilation in buildings or precision cooling technologies and processes. Much lies behind the new brand. Decades of experience. Specialist knowledge. Ideas. Ambition. Passion. Embodied in people across three continents, working together for Glen Dimplex Thermal Solutions.

The brand belongs to the Glen Dimplex Group in Dublin, the global market leader for electric heating – a family-led, debt-free company. We wanted to find out more about the strategic background to the realignment and what the Group hopes to achieve through it. So we arranged to speak to Fergal Naughton, CEO of the Glen Dimplex Group and son of the company’s founder Martin Naughton, and Jochen Engelke, who developed and drove the plan for the creation of Glen Dimplex Thermal Solutions and who leads the new division from Kulmbach in the Franconia area of Bavaria, Germany.
