This month marks the 20th anniversary of Buderus in the North American heating market. The company will commemorate the milestone over the next year with contests and special events.

The German heating brand first appeared in the U.S. marketplace in the early 1990s and was incorporated in October 1993, operating from its North American headquarters in Salem, NH.

According to the company, Buderus was founded in 1731 in Lubach, Germany, making it the oldest continuously operating hydronic heating company. By the 19th century, Buderus stoves were in demand throughout the world.

Today, Buderus manufactures advanced oil and gas boiler systems, controls, panel radiators, and solar thermal collectors.

Bosch Thermotechnology, which acquired Buderus in 2004, is celebrating its Buderus brand over the next 12 months with a variety of special events and contests including a photo contest of Buderus installations, a commemorative 20-year anniversary winter jacket promotion, and an open house in its New Hampshire headquarters. Details on contests, promotions, and events will follow.
