On Easter 1899, the founder of the current Vaillant Group, Johann Vaillant, saw an interesting picture in the magazine Alte und Neue Welt. It was a hare that had hatched from an egg. As well as gnomes and little animals who have gathered around the bunny and look at this miracle.
Ever since Johann Vaillant founded the company, he has been looking for some kind of original trademark for it. A special and unique trademark. And so it happened that it was this picture in the magazine that laid the foundation for the creation of a successful and popular brand.
And then Johann Vaillant, without further ado, bought the rights to a nice illustration. For that time, a rare decision. And for the sector of heating technology - unprecedented.
The "Hare in the Egg" logo set Vaillant GmbH apart from other manufacturers. From 1899 the logo could be seen on all its products. He also flaunted in the catalogs and brochures that the company issued. Only a few years have passed. And the company became popular not only in Germany, but also abroad.
The Vaillant Group specializes in the manufacture of equipment for heating, cooling and ventilation of premises. The company ranks second in Europe in its sector. Vaillant Group is the owner of eight brands of heating equipment, which have gained great popularity. The Vaillant brand became the flagship of the company.
Vaillant Group's production facilities, as well as its own production and research centers, are concentrated in Spain, Germany, Italy, Turkey, France, Great Britain, and Slovakia. And now in China too. Only products that are produced in the Celestial Empire diverge in the domestic market of this country.
Subsidiaries of the Vaillant Group operate in more than two dozen countries around the world. The company exports its products to more than 60 countries around the world.
One of the main activities of the Vaillant Group is the manufacture of products and systems that use renewable energy sources. We emphasize that year by year the demand for such equipment is growing across the entire continent. Especially for heat pumps, which use the heat of the earth and the surrounding air as a source of energy.
There is a considerable demand for solar installations that use solar energy. The demand for hybrid systems that can combine renewable energy with various heating equipment is not falling either. In this way, they create intelligent systems of particular efficiency.
