Zehnder are as old as the industry itself, founded in 1895 by Swiss national Jakob Zehnder. From his original workshop for bicycles and typewriters, the company expanded into home heating in 1930, when Robert Zehnder created the tubular radiator. These radiators were far lighter than the traditional cast iron radiators which were used worldwide at the time, and gave an alternative to the rigid rules of the radiator game such as standard column radiators. Zehnder has since become a household name, offering a North European alternative to the Italian and British brands of radiator, and offering something truly contemporary. Zehnder radiators are made from premium-grade aluminium, allowing them to bring fast heat ups together with easy installations.
Zehnder radiators are more than simply objects of heating. Designed by renowned international designers, they stand for a modern and self-conscious savoir-vivre. They blend perfectly into the current lifestyles like the country house ambience, minimalist purism, classic style or colourful mode.
Bisque is now part of the Zehnder family
In 2007/08, Bisque went into business with Zehnder, a Swiss company known for its amazing feats of engineering. The move was made in the hope that both businesses could learn from each other and expand their respective brands overseas.
Following Bisque joining the Zehnder Group in 2007 from 1st July 2022 the Bisque range has been brought under the Zehnder brand. As part of the Zehnder family, Bisque's bold and timeless designs now benefit from Zehnder's industry-recognised unwavering and steadfast technical expertise.
Bisque has been manufacturing radiators for over 40 years, a sure sign of their premium quality and craftsmanship. Today with over 300 product lines, the company is always developing innovative new designs, finishes, materials and technology. Throughout their history, Bisque has worked with established designers as well as rising talent. See the range of Bisque radiators we have to offer.
