Keston Boilers enters 2020 with a new corporate identity that includes the words “By Ideal Boilers”, demonstrating that it is part of the boiler manufacturing company.
The rebrand will initially be rolled out through social media and the Keston website and be used wider from March 2020, coinciding with an exciting new product launch. Keston’s range of combi, system and heat boilers and its accompanying filters will remain unchanged.
Keston can trace its history back to 1928, when its original parent company was established as a domestic and commercial heating installation and servicing operation. Keston was then purchased by Ideal Boilers in 2006. Boiler production was moved to Ideal’s Hull manufacturing site in 2013 and all Keston boilers since have been designed, developed and manufactured in the UK.
Jo Shepherd, Chief Marketing Officer, explains the change. “Our research showed us that many installers are unaware that Keston is part of Ideal and that it combines all the benefits they regularly get from installing Ideal boilers with the flexibility of Twin Flue Technology. Keston’s new look starts the journey of growing that awareness, helped by including the ‘smile’ from the Ideal Boilers logo to further cement the link between the two brands.”
An additional benefit for installers is the inclusion of Keston boilers in Installer Connect, allowing them to earn points on both Ideal and Keston installations.
