In the future, Pipelife would see itself moving from what we would traditionally have been – a pipe manufacturer – into a full-service provider for renewable heating technology: primarily air-to-water heat pumps, underfloor heating and low-temperature radiator systems.
The company is determined to offer contractors and installers the skills, support and service they need to thrive in the renewable heating sector

“These are really exciting times for Pipelife, we have always had a strong focus on providing a great service to all our customers and with the launch of our new Renewable Training Centres in Cork and Dublin this will allow us to support them with hands-on product training and installation techniques.

Our Training Centre has not only bolstered Pipelife’s reputation for reliability and products that are second to none, but has also reinforced the great work of our network of installers across Ireland.

Along with the additional sales staff that we are adding to our team these are truly exciting times for Pipelife”.
