What brands are in the Rheem Stable?
A New Australian Operation in 2013
In 2013, Rheem Australia announced the creation of the Rheem Solar Specialist Network.
It merges the trusted Rheem brand with the products and expertise of a specialised group of trained, dedicated solar specialists like Renew Energy, offering an accredited high level of solar water heater knowledge, advice and service.
This newly created specialist network, which was formerly known as the Solar Edwards dealer network, grew significantly from the expertise and vast experience that Rheem has developed in solar hot water technology and products.
The Rheem Solar Specialist Network merges Rheem's leadership and strength with the heritage and reputation of Edwards to offer a large range of ground and roof-mounted systems, which includes a range of rooftop stainless steel tanks that are available in Colourbond® colours.
