New name for underfloor heating company

Continental Underfloor has changed its name to Continal Underfloor Heating.

The company has been a design and supply specialist for energy-efficient warm-water underfloor heating systems for 20 years, and says the new name reflects its recent expansion into Europe.

Founder Chris Ingram says: “Over the past three years we have been expanding our family-owned British company into Europe, and now have operations in nine countries, including France, the Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium. In doing so we ran into some potential trademark issues, so our European operations were established under the name of Continal Underfloor Heating. As we continue to expand, it makes sense to change our name in the UK to reflect that we are now a single, global company.”

Continal Underfloor Heating has enjoyed significant growth in recent months. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Continal made the decision to continue to operate its team remotely, while ensuring all social distancing measures were in place. The company grew substantially during that time and, as a result, is now actively recruiting for a series of new roles within the business.

Chris adds: “We started planning for COVID-19 at the start of January, so when lockdown came we were ready, with plenty of stock and the ability to have everyone working from home almost instantly.

“Instead of slowing down, keeping people on furlough, or making job cuts, we supported our people, have grown substantially, and actually now have eight vacancies in a variety of roles that we are actively recruiting for.”
