About the Brand
Worcester Bosch, as the name suggests, began in Worcester in 1962 as a small engineering company specialising in oil fired heating.

This was cemented in 1992 when it was acquired by the Bosch Group.

The company manufactures a wide range of both gas and oil boilers as well as unvented cylinders, heating controls, stoves, heat pumps and solar water heating technology.

Although designed to complement Worcester Bosch’s Greenstar System and Regular boiler range, the Greenstore unvented cylinder will work with any brand of boiler. As with any Worcester Bosch product, they have an excellent reputation for both quality and reliability shown by their 25 year guarantee on the cylinder vessel.
Worcester Bosch offer 2 types of unvented cylinder in a range of capacities to suit your home’s hot water demand. Both types of cylinder are designed to be heated indirectly i.e. by a boiler but the Greenstore Solar also has the capability to work with a solar water heating system. The cylinder also includes a 3kW immersion heater as a backup should your boiler or solar breakdown. Worcester Bosch do not produce vented cylinders.
