As one of the world’s market and technology leaders in the fields of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning technology, the Vaillant Group is represented in more than 20 countries, and the company distributes its products and services in over 60 countries. The development of new heating technologies is carried out at six sites, while production takes place at nine locations.
The innovative heart of the company beats in the Johann Vaillant Technology Center at the headquarters of the Vaillant Group in Remscheid. Here, around 800 employees work on innovative heating technologies that reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
The Vaillant Group individually tailors its sales and services to customer requirements and the conditions of the markets. The company relies on three-tiered distribution, direct sales and online business.
The close cooperation with its more than 340,000 installing partners worldwide plays a decisive role in that regard.
The international production network of the Vaillant Group is decentralised and manufactures close to the company’s sales markets.
The Vaillant Group aims to achieve flexible and sustainable production. It has defined uniform standards and production principles for all sites worldwide.
All Vaillant Group development and production sites as well as our headquarters in Remscheid are certified in accordance with the following standards.
Quality management: ISO 9001
Keeping company quality management at a high level – with the aim of constantly improving workflows and management.
Environmental management: ISO 14001
Environmental management as a central component of operational environmental protection.
Occupational health and safety management: ISO 45001
Identifying and monitoring occupational health and safety risks in order to ensure safety and health within the company.
With this multi-site certification, binding high standards are ensured throughout the Vaillant Group.
Environmental protection is an important aspect in production.
Energy efficiency in production and buildings is an essential factor in achieving the climate targets that the Vaillant Group has set itself. Efficiency measures reduce the Vaillant Group’s gas consumption and the associated CO2 emissions.
The Vaillant Group uses electricity from renewable sources at all its sites.
For the Vaillant Group, environmental management certification is a matter of course. In order to conserve resources, the company works with heat recovery and closed-loop water reuse as standard.
In production, a digitally controlled, multi-layered production management system supports the processes: the Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Through the MES, every step in assembly work is predefined. This simplifies processes, provides orientation for employees and minimises errors. Only once the respective assembly step has been carried out flawlessly does the MES allow the product to advance to the next workstation for further assembly. In addition, quality-relevant data and test results can be checked. The MES makes comprehensive management of production processes possible.
