Rheem has always maintained a steady flow of innovation. For more than 25 years Rheem has been at the forefront of development in Solar and Renewable Energy Water Heating technologies. In May 2013 Rheem Australia announced the launch of the Rheem Solar Specialist Network. The new network is a result of the integration of the Solar Edwards business into Rheem. It combines the trusted Rheem brand with the products and expertise of a specialised group of trained, dedicated solar specialists who offer high level solar water heater advice and service.

The Rheem Solar Specialist Network combines the strength of Rheem with the Edwards heritage to offer an expanded range of roof-mounted and ground systems, including a unique rooftop range of stainless steel tanks available in a range of COLORBOND® colours. It also draws on the vast experience and expertise that Rheem Australia has developed in solar water heating.

This combined approach gives consumers the confidence of knowing that they are choosing products made by Australia’s number one brand in hot water. It’s supported by both the Rheem solar specialists and the large service network that Rheem operates around the country.

In addition, the new specialist network is well placed to address the changing market and householder needs. With the certainty of ongoing high gas and electricity prices, there will continue to be a strong solar market, and the increasing complexity of water heating products as demand for greater energy efficiency increases.

Rheem Manufacturing Co (Australia) Proprietary Ltd was incorporated in Melbourne, Australia on November 26, 1936 as the first overseas venture of Rheem Manufacturing Company, an American drum manufacturer.

Rheem® began making drums in Australia in 1937 and manufactured its first water heater in Australia at Waterloo, an inner Sydney suburb, in 1939.

In May of that same year, BHP purchased a 50% stake in the company and supplied the Australian steel used in all Rheem manufacturing. It was the beginning of an association that has endured for many years and which has been a contributing factor in Rheem’s ongoing success.
