Fernox is celebrating its 60th year in 2024. As the “world’s first chemical water treatment company,” the business says it has “consistently led the way in the heating industry over the last six decades” – from pioneering the use of chemicals, testing and filter technology, to keeping heating and renewable systems energy efficient.
Born from a light bulb moment by German engineer Peter Muetzel, Fernox has evolved exponentially over the years to become a “global company that applies its knowledge to the local market,” providing an extensive range of chemical water treatments and filters for both traditional and renewable heating systems.
This, it says, is thanks to its extensive research and development capabilities and a team of dedicated scientists and engineers that work to bring innovative solutions to market. Recent examples include the TF1 Sigma HP Filter and HP-EG heat transfer fluid.
In addition, Fernox has long been committed to training for installers and apprentices; continuing to lobby for the correct use of water treatment and implementation of industry best practice processes; and over the years has seen energy efficiency and environmental impact grow on the global and UK agenda.
Now in its 60th year, Fernox has lots to look forward to with the launch of new products and technologies, customer engagement activities and continuing to work with charity partners. Alongside this, the business states it will also continue to focus on supporting installers including investing into its “already comprehensive and impressive training facilities to elevate this valuable resource further for the current and next generation.”
Director Ernie McDonald said: “We are so proud to celebrate such an incredible milestone. 60 years strong and we have a great future ahead, with lots of innovations in the pipeline and exciting activities to celebrate our diamond anniversary.
“Although it’s important to look back and acknowledge everything we have achieved, for the team this year, it really is all about the future – and we remain absolutely committed to the environmental efficiency agenda.”
