The hunt is on for Worcester’s oldest boiler

29th Nov 2010

The Bosch Group is celebrating the approach of two big milestones by initiating a hunt to find the oldest Worcester boilers nationwide.

The year 2011 represents 125 years of Bosch, and 2012 will be Worcester’s 50th birthday. To commemorate these two momentous occasions the company is to create their own Worcester museum, which will take visitors through five decades of literature, press cuttings, photography and products.

Although Worcester do have a few classic boilers at their headquarters more are needed to complete their collection. As a result they are seeking out the oldest Worcester boilers nationwide. Ideally they would like an appliance that looks presentable which can be ‘spruced up’ and place on display.

In particular, they are looking for floor-standing boilers made between 20 and 40-years-ago, including one working model of each of the following:

• Heatslave Senior 6
• Heatslave 2+
• Firefly Oil Fired boiler
• Highflow 3.5

Worcester want installers and customers alike to get in touch. If you are an installer and have been asked to replace one or have customers who are planning to replace one then Worcester might be interested.

If you feel you have just the model then give Worcester a call and they will match the boiler scrappage scheme payout of £400 as a donation towards a new model if they progress.

Call Worcester on 01905 752 709 to notify them of any discoveries.
