Groupe Atlantic makes major investment in Clade Engineering Systems

Clade Engineering Systems (Clade), the UK’s leading manufacturer of natural refrigerant CO2 heat pumps, is partnering with Groupe Atlantic’s UK, ROI & North America Division.

Growing Groupe Atlantic’s thermal solution offerings

As the number one in commercial and domestic heating across Europe, this partnership reinforces Groupe Atlantic’s strategy to be at the forefront of low carbon heating solutions, offering the largest portfolio of heating products in the UK. Clade will join forces with the market-leading commercial brands from Groupe Atlantic, including Ideal Commercial Heating, Hamworthy, ACV and Keston.

Founded in 1985 as a refrigeration services company, Clade has deployed over 500 natural refrigerant appliances and since expanded into manufacturing refrigerant appliances and CO2 heat pump technologies. A specialist in helping customers reduce carbon emissions, their range of energy-efficient heat pumps can generate from 50kW to >1MW, offering extensive choice for customers in the retail, commercial, industrial and public sectors.


Helping customers with their journey to net zero

Designed and manufactured in the UK, specifically for the UK market, Clade understands the needs and environment of its customers. Working with customers to comply with the latest legislative changes around the decarbonisation of heating, Clade’s in-house research and development team offers thermal solutions to future-proof against the increasing costs of energy whilst reducing carbon footprint. As a result, this investment reinforces Groupe Atlantic’s position as leaders in the development and production of low carbon heating solutions and strengthens the expertise Groupe Atlantic can offer its customers in the UK with decarbonisation.

Combining local expertise

Headquartered in Bristol, Clade manufactures all of their products at their Technology Hub in Leeds, which is located near Groupe Atlantic’s commercial offices. Together, with Groupe Atlantic’s portfolio of commercial brands, Clade will benefit from Groupe Atlantic’s experience as UK market leaders with in-depth knowledge of their customers and each stage of the building services supply chain. Groupe Atlantic’s investment in Clade will ultimately expand both businesses’ offerings and customer reach across the UK, not only in CO2 heat pump technology, but also with green energy solutions.
