Ideal Boilers, based in Hull, started manufacturing boilers back in 1906. Since autumn 2018, the boiler chassis for the domestic range of boilers, have been manufactured using automation and a highly efficient process, designed by AP&T

Over 400,000 boilers leave the factory in Hull every year for households and commercial properties all over the UK. In order to meet the growing demand for the company’s products, Ideal Boilers decided in 2016 to investigate the possibilities for increased automation and streamlined production.

The company wanted to find a partner which could take on full responsibility and supply a turnkey solution for fully automated manufacturing of boiler enclosure parts — which are the parts that surround the boiler itself. After a careful selection process, Ideal Boilers chose AP&T to be its partner in spring 2017.
