Since its inception in 1881, Weil-McLain has grown to become a leading designer and manufacturer of hydronic comfort heating systems for residential, commercial and institutional buildings across America.
Today, with 600 employees, manufacturing facilities in Michigan City, Ind. and Eden, N.C., and regional sales offices throughout the U.S., the Burr Ridge, Ill.-based company continues its legacy of designing and manufacturing hydronic boilers and indirect-fired water heaters that deliver optimum energy efficiency and reliability. As the oldest boiler company in America, engineers, contractors, facility managers and homeowners have come to rely on Weil-McLain to deliver comfort and energy efficient heating.
