Mike joins Ferroli from Hamworthy Heating where he was UK Product Manager and has a wealth of experience in the commercial heating industry from previous positions at Georg Fischer, Nuaire and eight years in the Army with the Royal Engineers.

“My aim is to establish Ferroli as the UK’s leading commercial and industrial heating appliance supplier,” said Mike. “Ferroli really is the hidden giant in this sector; the range and quality of the products available is so impressive and I want to make that known.

Ferroli launches the New Condens commercial condensing boiler

New Condens

23rd May 2016

The latest addition to Ferroli’s extensive range of commercial boilers offers unique design features that guarantee very high efficiencies, very long service life and superb performance.

The floor standing gas fired New Condens FS 300-600 Series comes in 11 models ranging from 69kW to 542kW and can be cascaded up to a total capacity of 8,672kW.

Specially developed for the New Condens are the robust Al-Si-Mg heat exchanger and the stainless steel woven mesh pre-mix burner which deliver efficiency levels of up to 109.5% (NCV). NOx emissions are as low as 22mg/kWh and a very high modulation turndown ratio of 1:7 provides high average seasonal boiler efficiencies.

The easy to use controller and optional cascade module enable up to 16 New Condens boilers to be cascaded together and the controller allows the boiler to be fully integrated into renewable heating systems such as biomass, heat pumps and underfloor heating.

All of the combustion components and heat exchanger sections are housed within a robust steel frame with easily removed panels.

The New Condens is a superb example of Ferroli’s ability to design and build a boiler that is technically advanced whilst being easy to install, use and maintain. Visit the New Condens page to find links to the brochure and manuals.

New warranty choices on the Modena HE range

Modena 2yr-5yr-7yrwarranty_MODENA PAGE

29th February 2016

Because the Modena HE boiler is so reliable we’ve introduced a 7 or 10 year warranty upgrade to the standard 5 year option, so you can now give your customers even more peace of mind. Here’s a quick explanation of how it works.

All Modena HE boilers come with a 5 year warranty as standard. To upgrade to 7 or 10 years you will need to buy a Warranty Upgrade Pack from your merchant at the same time as buying the boiler. Inside this pack you will find a unique number – this represents your warranty upgrade.

Remember, you can only buy a warranty upgrade at the same time as buying the boiler. A warranty upgrade cannot be added after the boiler has been registered.

To register the warranty you will need to be a member of our loyalty club Installersmate. If you haven’t joined already, visit www.installersmate.co.uk and see the great benefits you’ll enjoy, including free notifications.

After installing the boiler for your customer, log into your Installersmate account and make your notification. As part of this process you will be asked to enter the serial number of the boiler.

If you have purchased a standard 5 year warranty boiler this length of warranty will be recorded against the notification. If you have purchased a warranty upgrade pack this is when you will be asked to enter your unique number. This will register the correct warranty length against this notification. Installersmate will generate and dispatch the warranty certificate to your customer.

Worth noting – every Modena HE boiler comes with an instructions card on how to register your warranty; these instructions apply to a standard 5 year warranty only. If you have purchased a 7 or 10 year warranty upgrade you can dispose of this card. Standard 5 year warranties can be registered via Installersmate and also via Domestic & General or by phone as normal.

That’s it, easy!

If you have any questions please get in touch, we are always pleased to hear from you and happy to help.

Major investment returns restructured Ferroli to full strength in boiler market

Ferroli Leopard 2nd December 2015

Ferroli is very pleased to announce that the final negotiations of the company’s restructure are due to be completed at the end of this year and that boiler production is back to full strength.

The new investors are Oxy Capital Italia, based in Milan, and UK-based company Attestor Capital.

After a pause whilst the transfer of the company to the new owners was under negotiation, production restarted in September this year and the Modena HE range of combi and system boilers is now back in stock at merchants throughout the UK.

Ferroli UK managing director Flavio Buccianti said: “Ferroli’s history is one of market-leading innovation in the heating industry and we are very proud of our achievements. After a difficult economic period, this financial investment means that we can return to doing what we do best – the design, development and manufacture of high performance, energy efficient heating appliances that help our customers to reduce their fuel usage.

“Our new investors are already putting into practice various initiatives that will bring the company back to profitability, including some long-awaited investment on new products.

“The future for Ferroli is looking very bright and we are excited to be facing 2016 with positivity and enthusiasm for the new products that we will be launching, as well as the continuing success of the exceptional Modena HE boiler range.

“Everyone at Ferroli UK would like to sincerely thank all our customers who have been such loyal supporters during this period of change.”

The Ferroli Group, which employs more than 1,000 people in Italy, will remain at its head office and production plant in San Bonifacio, near the Italian city of Verona.

The Ferroli family retains an interest in the company, which was founded by the late Dante Ferroli in 1955, and will continue to be involved.

Our free 1 day current product awareness training courses are designed to give engineers a  comprehensive  understanding of installation requirements, appliance set-up and servicing, fault  finding and parts replacement.
