Glen Dimplex is an Irish-based consumer electrical goods firm. Founded in 1973 in Northern Ireland as an electric heater manufacturer, the company has expanded by acquisitions. It is now the world's largest electrical heating business and holds significant market positions in the domestic appliance industry worldwide. With an annual turnover of €1.5 Billion, the Group employs 8,500 people.

Glen Dimplex remains privately owned and finances its ongoing expansion from its own resources. Fundamental to its success, is a policy of continuous investment in building brands and constant product innovation. The firm owns brands such as Roberts Radio, Belling, Stoves, New World, Lec, Burco Dean Appliances, Morphy Richards and AquaVac.

The company is privately held, and bases most of its manufacturing and development in United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. However, the company also has branches in Scandinavia. [ [http://www.glendimplex.no/english.html Glen Dimplex Nordic ] ]

Dimplex was the fourth sponsor of Southampton Football Club from 1993 until 1995.
