Halstead has marked its
presence in UK since 1975 and has recently been taken over as a part of the
Glen Dimplex Group that is now known as the Halstead Gland Dimplex. The entire
operation was moved to a site in Prescot, near Liverpool in 2009.
Glen Dimplex emerged as
an Irish based consumer electrical goods company that is headquartered in
Dublin, Ireland. It is a privately owned company that has its manufacturing and
development centers located in Republic of Ireland, UK, China and many other
countries across the world. The history of Glen Dimplex can be traced back to
the year 1973 in Northern Ireland when an electric heater manufacturer with 10
employees incorporated the company and discovered it as Glen Dimplex on June 7,
1978 due to the merger with Dimplex, large electric heating appliance
manufacturer in 1977.
