Alde AB was founded in 1949 by the Swede, Alde Rask, manufacturing systems for cars and tractors. Over a decade the company would become more focused on caravans and boats. The company's first central heating system was developed in 1966 and offered for export in 1969.
In 1986, senior management led by Bo Griwell reorganised the company, creating a new Paneuropean structure with independent companies acting as agents abroad. Alde International Systems AB in Sweden, and Alde International (UK) Ltd were founded in the same year.
With hydronic (wet) central heating systems gaining favour in the luxury market, Alde International Systems AB continued to grow and prosper, manufacturing state of the art systems for caravans and motorhomes and boats.
In 2009, Alde International (UK) Ltd became the UK subsidiary of Alde International Systems AB. From the company's UK headquarters in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, Alde UK provides sales and technical support to manufacturers across the country, with the ASCARE programme providing servicing and certificated training to the end user and dealer network.

Since 2014, Swift Group’s exclusive partnership with leisure market-leading bedding specialist, Duvalay has gone from strength to strength.
Swift Group’s initial deal to fit Duvalay’s innovative Duvalite mattresses in select fixed-bed models has proven so popular that by 2015, Duvalite is a standard feature across Swift’s entire range of touring caravans, as well as all fixed-bed coach-built motorhome models.
Duvalay’s innovative, Duvalite technology guarantees the durable pressure-relief and supportive comfort associated with memory-foam. However, its extra-lightweight, hypoallergenic fibres deliver superior temperature-harmonising and weight-saving benefits.
Helping to significantly eliminate heat retention, Duvalite mattresses are resistant to dust-mite and completely recyclable. Being ultra-lightweight and pliable, they are a breeze to handle.
Catapulted to fame on Dragon's Den and now backed by business guru and former Dragon, Hilary Devey, family-owned Duvalay is a favourite among Swift Group’s customers.
Our latest contract extends the partnership to 2018.
As a new development, this will see Duvalay’s fresh new range of high-specification mattresses featured as standard throughout Swift Group’s holiday homes. These innovative mattresses benefit from a unique dual-spring system, delivering a supreme, extra-luxurious sleep experience.
