Just months after reaching the one million Greenstar condensing boilers milestone, Worcester has seen its 500,000th oil-fired boiler produced since the heating manufacturer was acquired by Bosch in 1992.

At 11:17am on Wednesday 25th November the 500,000th Worcester, Bosch Group oil appliance - a Heatslave model - rolled off the tracks at its factory in Clay Cross, Derbyshire.

Bob Murdoch, director of plant at Clay Cross, said: "We're thrilled to have reached this incredible target. It is a real reminder of the hard work and dedication of the Clay Cross team but also evidence that Worcester as a company is the leader in oil-fired boiler production in the UK.

"We manufacture around 120 oil-fired boilers a day at our Clay Cross factory - which includes 100% quality checks on every boiler throughout the manufacturing process.

"We now have 250 employees working here and are the largest private employer in Chesterfield. Although oil-fired boilers have a small market share compared to gas appliances, they remain a very important part of Worcester’s product portfolio, with over 25,000 units produced each year.
