Today we take boilers and central heating for granted, but back in 1906 when the National Radiator Company built its UK factory in Hull, these were new technologies, ones which the new company readily embraced. In the 1920s the Company launched the revolutionary Cookanheat - a combination of open fire, central heating boiler and oven, designed specifically for the British market where boilers were placed in kitchens. This product did more to introduce central heating into ordinary homes than any other such appliance.
It is an emphasis on innovation that the National Avenue based company has continued to this day as it continues to be one of the leading central heating boiler manufacturers in the country, now also embracing new energy technologies.
