Clade has a history stretching back 36 years, when the founder started a family business servicing refrigeration plant. The business, then known as A1 Engineering Services, grew steadily in both revenue and expertise.
Growth accelerated under the leadership of the current Managing Director adding manufacturing capacity and moving into natural refrigerants. Over the next few years Clade manufactured and deployed over 500 natural refrigerant products across the UK.
As the heat in buildings challenge became clearer Clade began the R&D for a new range of heat pumps which would provide a solution for a growing market. The first heat pump was installed in a Co-Op store and achieved a staggering SCOP of 3.7. The rebrand to Clade in 2021 and expansion of the leadership team cemented the move into the heat pump market.
