How did all this start?
Mr. Isak started selling Swedish pellet burners as a retailer in 1999 and Mr. Kotli was his first customer.
A vendor-client relationship quickly evolved into a partnership between two men to bring pellet burners to Estonia. Their first project was a pelletizing plant in Tallinn, which created wooden pellets from scrap wood. Everything it initially produced was sold domestically, as was its main purpose – propagate the use of renewable pellets in Estonia.
By getting acquaintanced with the Swedish burner, Aavo and Priit discovered more and more aspects which needed improving, to the extent of them deciding on creating their own pellet burner.
The prototype phase took numerous nights in basements to finally complete. The first burner was ready in 2005 and sold under the name of another company. The booming construction business eased entering into the competetive energy market and so Pelltech OÜ was registered on June 2 2006.
The first models were 20 kW and 30 kW burners. The company recieved custom orders for burners we had not yet developed. As time passed, 50 kW, 100 kW burners were engineered, followed by bigger, industrial 350-1000 kW burners. Our first distributing partner was in Latvia with Lithuanian, Spanish, Romanian and Greek partners coming right after.
Currently, we have burners heating in most European countries and strong ties with partners across the globe.
What will we do next?
Pelltech OÜ continues to capitalise on product development and on expanding our product catalogue. Our engineering department has grown in size, which yields for more products with new features in the future. Graphic web interface and a phone app for monitoring pellet burners and heating systems have been in the prototype phase for some time and are going to be implemented in the near future. We are actively advancing on our pellet boiler series, with custom boilers for PV 100b and PV 1000a currently in development.
