Background

The company was founded in 1929 by John C. Cleaver, who started manufacturing small, portable boilers. Cleaver and Raymond Brooks formed Cleaver-Brooks in 1931 and began producing the world's first packaged boiler. Through a commitment to research and development and a sound acquisition strategy, today the company is the sole provider of integrated boiler/burner/control solutions and is a leading manufacturer of boiler room equipment across commercial, institutional, and industrial markets.

An early industry leader, Cleaver-Brooks maintains that reputation today and is committed to introducing technology and products that enable a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly generation of steam and hot water. In December 2010, Cleaver-Brooks introduced its steam-ready Nebraska D series, significantly reducing the drawing-to-installation timeframe of an integrated D-style industrial watertube system. In January 2011, the company launched the CBEX, an integrated firetube boiler system with cutting-edge EX Technology that will set a new standard for compact, high-efficiency design. In March 2011, the company acquired stack manufacturer Cheminée Lining to enhance its exhaust solutions offering.
