Alde is a leading manufacturer in onboard heating systems for motorhomes, caravans and campervans, specialising in hot water heating.
The company is based in Farlov in Sweden, where the company first began and develops and builds all of its products – 90% of which are exported for sale.
Due to Sweden’s cold climate, Alde has spent decades developing hydronic central heating systems that provide warmth and comfort to all manner of mobile homes. All Alde systems are tested in -35 Celcius conditions to ensure they remain well heated, even in the harshest of conditions.
Alde was founded in 1949 by Alde Rask, who gave his name to the company. His initial ideas and inventions remain the base for today’s Alde products.
Shortly after the end of World War II, Rask, along with his two brothers-in-law Gunnar Eklund and Erik Ohlin, started a small company that manufactured products for trailers.
In the 1950s, Rask built a caravan on a trailer, rumoured to have been Sweden’s first. In 1966, Alde’s first mobile boiler was introduced and hailed “the perfect heating for caravans” by a local Swedish paper.
By 2012, Alde cracked the North American market, with access to Canada, and the company became a global success.
In 2015, the Alde Flow system was introduced – changing the game of flowing hot water inside caravans and motorhomes.
Alde is one of a small handful of companies to have adapted its technology to the ever-evolving needs of caravan and motorhomes owners. It sits at the forefront of mobile phone app technology and is dedicated to making each invention smaller and more powerful than the last.
With the announcement of their first-ever aftermarket fitting – the Alde Flow – it is clear that Alde will be bringing a lot more to market than just what they sell directly to manufacturers.
