  • 1991 - Creation of the company APEN GROUP

    Thermovür and AERMAX merge into a single production and business unit, taking advantage of the skills, experience and know-how of both brands: thus creating the company APEN GROUP SPA.

  • 2000’s - Consolidation

    In 1998, the company launched the wall-mounted gas-fired modulating heaters series PLUS. They are EC-approved and feature high efficiency stainless steel exchangers, pre-mix gas burner and forced draught with low NOx emissions. The research and development effort connected with this product have enabled the subsequent designing of the KONDENSA heaters. In 2001 the company presents AQUASPLIT, an outdoor boiler with matching indoor blower.  In 2008 APEN GROUP confirms its technical knowledge in the air handling industry launching KONDENSA heaters, (wall-mounted condensation warm air heaters), air handling central units, and Roof Top standalone units with built-in condensing exchanger.
