|Firebird is proud to declare over 35 years manufacturing in the heating industry, developing some of the most renowned products on the market.
Our product range covers everything you need for your heating solution.
From the robust, elite manufacturing process, through to the dedicated sales, technical and training teams, Firebird can guarantee the highest quality product and service. In addition, our products are rigorously tested and approved to all relevant European and national standards.
We are all aware that the regulations require us to build more energy conscious houses with respect to insulation, heating and orientation. This is why at Firebird, we continue to expand and improve our product range. We now manufacture the most efficient boiler in Europe – the Enviromax Blue Supreme. A combination of Firebird heating products can help achieve a BER “A” rating.
All Firebird products are designed using the very latest in CAD-CAM technology. Our products are approved to all relevant European and national standards and are rigorously tested before launch. Firebird has enjoyed a string of industry firsts including the first SEDBUK Band A Combi boiler on the market.
STATE OF THE ART MANUFACTURING
Our dedication to quality is second to none and continuous improvement programmes have resulted in higher quality products with an even greater degree of flexibility and efficiency. Firebird has invested heavily to automate and streamline production in order to meet rapidly changing market demands and future needs. Today most of our manufacturing processes are automated, including Trumpf punching centres, robotic folding and welding and an automated paint line.
