About Rheem

Founded in 1925, Rheem has always focused on providing comfort to the millions of customers they serve across fifty countries.

Intergas is a leading player in the Netherlands for gas fired boilers and hybrid heat pump solutions, and DEJONG is a top-tier producer of hot water tanks. With these companies’ product portfolios, Rheem is rapidly building its presence in Europe and capitalizing on the significant opportunities brought about by the continent’s frontrunner position in combating climate change. The company is further expanding in the region through acquisitions and the construction of a new factory in Slovakia.

As part of Rheem’s global sustainability program “A Greater Degree of Good ™,” Rheem Europe aims for ambitious Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) targets in honor of the company’s centenary in 2025. The organization has already exceeded its goal of training 250,000 plumbers, contractors, and key stakeholders on sustainability—instead, training almost 500,000 up to now. Rheem is also well on its way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% and to achieve Zero Waste to Landfill in its global manufacturing operations, empowere its customers and employees to live and work more sustainably.
