Burco Commercial switches to new Glen Dimplex division following strategic business review

As one of the foodservice industry’s most recognisable brands, Burco Commercial combines a heritage spanning more than half a century with standout engineering and development, producing a range of award-winning water boiler appliances for the trade. In an announcement, that follows a comprehensive internal strategic review of the wider group, the Burco water boiler business will move within the Glen Dimplex Group to be part of Glen Dimplex Heating and Ventilation.

The move, which will take effect from 2nd April 2018, will see Burco form part of the Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation portfolio, enhancing the division’s centre of excellence for hot water equipment and heating and ventilation products.

Steven Mortimer, chief commercial officer at Glen Dimplex Heating and Ventilation comments:

“Following a strategic review of the Glen Dimplex Group, leading commercial hot water boiling equipment brand, Burco, will be switching from the Professional Appliances division, to complement our portfolio at Glen Dimplex Heating and Ventilation. With a seamless transition between the two divisions, customers can expect the same great service and leading support they have come to rely on, while our expertise and drive for innovation will continue to support the future expansion and development of the Burco product range.”

Based in Southampton, Glen Dimplex Heating & Ventilation is a division of Glen Dimplex, the largest manufacturer of electrical heating in the world. As part of the consolidation of the overall business operation, design, development and manufacturing of current and future Burco product lines will be centralised in Dunleer, Ireland, while distribution will be managed from the division’s large-scale logistics centre in Burnley.

It is envisaged that this transition will be seamless for customers with an inclusive plan in place to support operators’ needs. Customers, dealers and distributors will be delighted to see an exciting, continuously expanding portfolio of Burco products made in the British Isles, retaining the brand’s ethos of reliability, versatility and value.
