At that time, open fires, fuelled with peat and wood, were the main source of heat in Irish homes. In 1972, Gerard Crosse was inspired to design and build a “back” boiler, which used the fire to heat other rooms in the house.
Since the 1970s we have diversified and strengthened our business, becoming a leading manufacturer and supplier of residential and commercial Biomass Boiler systems. From our manufacturing facility in Tipperary, we have supplied over 4,000 boilers worldwide. We have also become experts in key areas such the Pigs, Mushroom and Poultry sectors, Care Homes and Hotels & Leisure Centres.
In recent years, the company’s Research & Development team began to focus on complex Waste to Energy systems. Woodco has won several awards including the prestigious Green Product Award in 2018. In the 47 years since Gerard Crosse designed our first boiler, we have come a long way.
