It all started in Markaryd
NIBE is a global group that develops and manufactures intelligent, energy-efficient indoor comfort solutions for all types of properties. It all started in Markaryd, in the Swedish county of Småland 70 years ago, in a region that is renowned for its entrepreneurial spirit.
We value our Nordic heritage by harnessing the power of nature. We combine renewable energy with new smart technology to offer efficient solutions, so that together we can create a more sustainable future
The founder of NIBE-Verken in Markaryd was Nils Bernerup, whose initials gave the company its name. Production of the water heater began in 1952. The heaters were pioneered in farm milking parlours until they finally made it into Swedish homes.
40 years of heat pumps
In 1981, the very first NIBE heat pump – an exhaust air heat pump – was unveiled and production started in Markaryd. Today there are products for heating, air conditioning, heat recovery, ventilation and hot water for all houses and properties.
Product development in Markaryd
This is where all product development and most manufacturing has taken place since the start. 1997 saw the launch of the first ground source heat pump, 2002 the first air/water heat pump, and, in 2019, intelligent heat pumps became a natural part of smart homes.
A step into the future
Today, NIBE is a world-leading innovation company with intelligent, energy-efficient products that enable a sustainable future society. NIBE is growing with major investments in innovation and production.
