2016 has been another record breaking year for us here at Thermogroup and we would like to thank you for your support!
Despite the economic unpredictability this year has offered, we have worked hard to shield our customers from significant supply chain cost increases, while continuing to provide the market-leading customer support service you have come to expect.
Here are just a few of our highlights from 2016:
We launched Thermogroup EU - As part of our continuing growth strategy we formed Thermogroup EU. Stephen Joynt was appointed as our dedicated sales rep over in Ireland and helped to launch Thermogroup EU to the Irish market. We also opened a distribution facility in Dublin to enable next day delivery and launched two exclusive new ranges of Thermorail.
Sales process engineering - We implemented SPE at the beginning of this year as part of our natural progression and expansion. We pushed ourselves to achieve our growth targets and have worked together to find new ways to optimise efficiency across the company and the figures this year speak for themselves!
We introduced the UK’s first dual control thermostat - In January we launched our unique dual control Thermotouch 4.3dC thermostat which features two relays that can be independently controlled. We pledged to donate up to £1 of every thermostat sold to charity and due to the popularity of the Thermotouch 4.3dC we were able to raise a significant amount of money for local charities!

We’re growing! - Due to continued growth this year we have doubled the size our of customer service team and added to our salesforce in order to keep up with market demand. We are confident this will continue in the foreseeable future!
There is no stopping us next year either! Our R&D department has been working on some fantastic new products that we’ll be launching in 2017 including:
Vario Ply - A new innovation in plywood that incorporates heating cables for direct application onto floorboards.
New thermostats with WiFi options - Elegant, glass-faced thermostats including WiFi-equipped versions that can be driven by our new easy-to-use Android and iOS apps.
Website revamp - An even-better, interactive website with handy calculators and a media centre.
Look out for our new and improved 2017 product guide which will be available in January. This guide outlines all of our innovative products and features more technical data than ever!
Once again thank you for choosing Thermogroup, we look forward to providing you with that little bit extra in 2017.
