How an entrepreneurial family business goes global25 November 2014
DiscreteHeat is a Manchester-based family business. Their product is an ingenious heating system, which hides radiators inside a skirting board.
Martin Wadsworth, DiscreteHeat Managing Director, first appeared on Dragons Den in 2006 with his heating product, which is aimed at people who want to avoid those ugly wall-hung radiators. Since then, Martin has grown his firm’s turnover, recruited more staff and set up new international franchises.
