ATLANTA, GA and COEVORDEN, THE NETHERLANDS – On May 31, 2019, Rheem acquired Intergas of Coevorden, the Netherlands, through its group entity, Paloma Rheem Global, Inc.

Headquartered in Atlanta, the company’s portfolio of premium water brands include Rheem®, Raypak® Ruud®, Eemax®, EcoSmart®, Richmond®, Splendid®, Solahart® and EverHot™.
With the acquisition of Intergas, Rheem will obtain a first-class platform in the European heating and hot water market, which is the second largest in the world.
“We are very pleased to welcome Intergas as an important part of our Global Water Division,” said Chris Peel, President and CEO of Paloma Rheem Global, Inc. “The addition of Intergas into the Rheem family of brands increases the breadth of our boiler and water heating offerings, while also providing Rheem with competitive solutions to meet consumer demands in Europe.
