Glen Dimplex New Zealand is part of the Glen Dimplex Group which was founded in 1973 and considered the world’s largest electrical heating business holding significant market positions in the domestic appliance industry worldwide. With an annual turnover of NZ$3.6 Billion, the Group employs over 10,000 people.
