The Vaillant history stretches back to the year 1874 when the company was founded by Johann Vaillant in Remscheid, Germany. Ever since then, Vaillant has been a market leader in the heating and ventilation technology industry.
2013 Exhibition ship MS Vaillant tours Europe
Under the slogan "Energy on the move", Vaillant is bringing the energy transition at home from March to September 2013. In more than 50 European towns, installers and interested consumers are able to visit the 100-meter-long exhibition ship to find out about the energy savings modern heating technology can offer.
2012 Hybrid system unites heat pumps and boiler technology
In August 2012, Vaillant begins the production of a new hybrid heat pump system. The compact heat pump integrates renewable energy into existing buildings and systems at low investment costs. The heat pump operates in combination with a condensing boiler for maximum energy efficiency.
3kW heat pump and ecoTEC plus - an unbeatable team.
2011 Control comfort intuitively – calorMATIC
Vaillant has a long tradition of producing user-friendly boilers. The new generation of controls, calorMATIC, continues this tradition and points the new way forward by taking into account consumers' individual needs. With its modern, intuitive settings, the calorMATIC achieves the desired room temperature. Quickly and easily, with a turn & click switch and standardised buttons. Personal and intuitive - the calorMATIC room temperature control.
2011 Family power station for your home
The ecoPOWER 1.0 micro-CHP system offers alternative energy for every household. It produces both warmth and electricity, and was designed exclusively for detached houses or homes split into two flats. Vaillant is thus making a technology available that has long been lacking on the market. The intelligent, pre-defined all-round system is environmentally friendly and extremely efficient.
The ecoPOWER 1.0 micro-CHP system - for the home and the family.
2010 zeoTHERM: small, effective, efficient
Vaillant sets new standards with the zeoTHERM zeolite-gas heat pump. For the first time ever, households can now make use of the natural heating properties of zeolite and water. This technological revolution is ground-breaking for the market: not only does the heat pump save energy, it also has a low level of CO2 emissions. Saving money - and protecting the environment
2007 Premiere on the Asian market
Vaillant is developing, Asia is developing. Combining the two is an obvious step! With the opening of a plant in Wuxi in China, Vaillant can now operate on the Asian-Pacific market
2001 A brand becomes a Group
The brands within the new Group continue to be marketed separately in various European countries. To complement the Vaillant brand, the company acquires targeted brands to extend their brand portfolio and meet differing market conditions.
1999 An anniversary - lots of reasons to celebrate
With 40 million boilers sold, Vaillant celebrates its 125th anniversary and receives the German Quality Award.
1997 Introduction of solar thermal systems
By introducing solar thermal systems for domestic hot water, Vaillant further extends its product portfolio in the field of renewable energy. An important step for the future.
1995 Development and production under one roof
Vaillant develops and manufactures his first wall-hung boiler, and launches it on the market. Once again, the brand thus succeeds in positioning itself as pioneer in a new environmentally-friendly field of technology.
1991 New thermoblock especially environmentally friendly
With the new, low-emission thermoblock, Vaillant sets early standards in the field of environmental impact. The boiler is valued for its low emission rate. Success proves Vaillant is on the right track: new branches are opened in Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Turkey.
1970 Vaillant travels the world
With branches in the Netherlands, Austria, Belgium, France, Great Britain and Italy, Vaillant begins to enjoy ever-increasing international popularity for guaranteeing comfort in the home. By 1972, Vaillant has already sold eight million units.
1967 Heating and hot water combined intelligently
Vaillant succeeds in uniting heating and hot water in a single, compact, wall-hung "Combi-Geyser VCW 20" boiler. The boiler proves its worth with its short heating up time and adjustable heat output.
1961 Wall-hung Geyser revolutionises the market
Vaillant redefines the technologically possible, and launches the innovative and space-saving "Circo-Geyser MAG-C 20" on the market - the world's first wall-hung boiler.
1924 Central heating - an invention by Vaillant
Up to now, rooms had to be heated individually with stoves or fireplaces. With the central heating boiler and its associated system, it is now possible for the first time to heat several radiators via one central distributor. Vaillant blazes a trail again.
1905 The next great idea creates space in the bathroom
Vaillant is the first manufacturer to produce a wall-hung bathwater heater, and this invention creates more space in the bathroom.
1899 A bunny becomes the face of a brand
One Easter Sunday, while flicking through a magazine, Johann Vaillant sees a picture of a bunny hatching from an egg - and instantly knows that the bunny will be his trademark. Like the company itself, this trademark has been modernised several times over the years, and is now the best-known logo in the field of heating technology in all Europe.
1894 The first ground-breaking innovation
With the "closed system" gas bathwater heater, Johann Vaillant revolutionises the market for good. For the first time ever, water is heated by a gas flame as it flows through a closed pipe - without coming into contact with harmful gases: a revolution in the bathroom.
1874 The opening chapter of a great story
Johann Vaillant, the tenth child in his family, founds his own workshop as copper beater and pump maker in 1874. The start of a great success story.
