Vaillant marked the production of the millionth ecoTEC high-efficiency condensing boiler for the UK market from its factory at Belper in Derbyshire with the awarding of £1000 of holiday vouches to be shared equally by the householder and installer.

Mark Döerpinghaus, Vaillant Group’s plant director, said, ‘This is a significant milestone for our dedicated production team at Belper, many of whom have been here since the first ecoTEC boiler made its debut, so their efforts have contributed to this excellent achievement from start to finish.

‘The Belper factory has also been acclaimed for its efficiency and innovation within manufacturing circles and recently won both the “Best engineering plant award” and the “Energy and environment award” in the Best Factory Awards 2010.’

Recent investment includes £1 million in the air testing of every appliance.
