An Irish-German success story: Our milestones

DIMPLEX – We give warmth a face.

For more than 45 years, DIMPLEX has stood for innovative technologies and products for electrical heating and ventilation at the Kulmbach location. The DIMPLEX product portfolio ranges from intelligent heat storage devices, modern direct heating devices, plug-in heating devices to smart heating systems for app control.

1973 – Glen Electric Founded

Martin Naughton and four colleagues founded Glen Electric in Newry, Northern Ireland. With just seven employees, Naughton begins producing oil-filled radiators. Kulmbacher Klimageräte (KKW) was founded in 1972 and produced the first storage heater in series production.

1977 - Glen Dimplex is Born

Just four years after the company was founded, the great success of the radiators was already evident: in 1977, Martin Naughton took over DIMPLEX, the British market leader in the field of electric heating, a company that was eight times its size. This is how Glen Dimplex is created.

1990 – Takeover by Glen Dimplex Group

The NPPs are taken over by the Irish Glen Dimplex Group.

2005 – New name: Glen Dimplex Germany

KKW becomes Glen Dimplex Germany! The membership of the Glen Dimplex Group is now also reflected in the name.

2020 - World Leader in Electric Heaters

Today, Glen Dimplex Group is a global leader in intelligent electric heating and renewable energy solutions and holds significant global market positions in home appliances, refrigeration and ventilation.
