Dating back to 1793, Trianco has become known as the 'Rolls-Royce of boilers.
Trianco can trace its origins back to the Industrial Revolution and the foundation of Newton Chambers in 1793. This firm had grown out of coal mining and iron founding into a major group of diverse operational companies that included heavy engineering as well as chemical products under the famous IZAL brand. By the 1850s it was making coal fire ranges at Thorncliffe near Sheffield. Fireplaces, back boilers and free standing heating stoves followed and, in 1873, the company was awarded the royal warrant to Queen Victoria.
One of the lines of the Foundry Division of Newton Chambers & Co. was Redfyre Products which developed rapidly after the Second World War, particularly with its continuous burning range of fires. Sales efforts were focused through British Coal and local authorities and the product range developed from open fires to inset room heaters. Having diversified into oil boilers and then gas boilers, the company refocused distribution arrangements into the builders’ merchant trade and concentrated on building brand loyalty among installers of central heating equipment.
Over the years Trianco became known as the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of boilers having developed a reputation for its high quality solid fuel and oil products. Adding to this prestigious image, the company was awarded the royal warrant as manufacturers of boilers to Her Majesty the Queen Mother in 1953.
In 2000 Trianco diversified into manufacturing Electric Boilers with their introduction of the Aztec range.
In 2010 a management buyout led to TR Engineering taking the Trianco name to the next level. Switching focus from the traditional Trianco product lines and concentrating on electric and renewable energy with the introduction of their ActivAir Heat Pump range. The Aztec electric heating and ActivAir heat pump ranges have developed into the comprehensive range of heating solutions available today.
Having transitioned away from the traditional oil and solid fuel boilers, Trianco is revolutionising heating solutions by designing and producing renewable products with a focus on supporting carbon zero goals. Trianco cares deeply about not only the impact on the environment but providing products that are future-proof and comply with the Future Homes Standard (FHS) 2025.
