Atlantic is a leading supplier of boilers, water heaters, renewable energy-based equipment (heat pumps, solar and heat pump water heaters etc.), radiators, air conditioning and ventilation equipment. The Group serves both residential and industrial markets with reputed global and local brands such as Atlantic, Ideal, Thermor, Sauter, etc. Thanks to its 10,300 employees and its 28 industrial sites worldwide, the Group generated more than €2.2 bn in revenues in 2020.
