A family business for a better climate
Providing people around the world with innovative heating, hot-water and cooling solutions – that is our mission. For a better climate – inside each home and the world around it. As a family business, we have been committed to this vision for more than 145 years.
We are a global market and technology leader in the fields of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology. Sustainability has always been part of our ethos. In 2015, we were presented with the German Sustainability Award as Germany’s most sustainable large company. This represents a very special honour for our roughly 15,000 employees around the world, who champion the cause of climate protection on a day-to-day basis – many of them doing so within an international network of production and development sites in six European countries and China. More than half of our employees cater for our customers in sales and service – in over 20 countries worldwide.
Our collaboration is underpinned by an open corporate culture. We treat each other with respect and fairness; we support each other as a strong community, guided by our values: entrepreneurship, trust, integrity and passion.
Focusing on climate targets
“Taking care of a better climate. Inside each home and the world around it.” Whilst the vision of the Vaillant Group was reworded in 2017, it has applied ever since the company was established by Johann Vaillant in 1874. Vaillant has always been transforming energy into warmth for people in the most efficient way possible. We specialise in heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology – which are all critical factors in the energy transition. In the European Union alone, more than 40 per cent of primary energy is used in the buildings sector – the majority of which for heating and hot-water provision. With intelligent, energy-saving products and solutions, we enable our customers to heat in an efficient and eco-friendly manner, thus making a contribution towards achieving climate protection targets.
“Taking care of a better climate. Inside each home and the world around it.” This is our ambition and our responsibility – for millions of people and for the global climate.
Eight brands, one vision
With our eight brands, we offer a comprehensive portfolio in the areas of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology.
Vaillant stands for innovative and efficient products, intelligent control systems and top-class service – for the very best in future orientation, comfort, design, efficiency and sustainability. We provide our customers with technologically ground-breaking solutions – for a comfortable home and the world around it.
Furthermore, the Saunier Duval brand group (Saunier Duval, AWB, Bulex, Glow-worm, Hermann Saunier Duval and Protherm) and the DemirDöküm brand make up a significant part of the Vaillant Group’s brand portfolio. These brands encompass reliable and intelligent heating solutions for both today and tomorrow. We count on regional expertise and are guided by the individual requirements of our customers.
