Fink Machine said it has “simplified” its supply chain in an effort to reduce its costs.

It will now be sourcing biomass boilers directly from European Manufacturer Mawera Holzfeuerungsanlagen GmbH, it said in a press release.

“The Vitoflex 300 RF and Vitoflex 300 UF boilers previously distributed by Viessmann Canada will now return to their original model names of Pyrot (RF) and Pyrotec (UF). The boilers will continue to be both ASME and CSA certified for all variants. Fink Machine would like to thank Viessmann Canada for all their support over the past 16 years. We look forward to an exciting future dealing directly with Mawera,” it said.

Fink Machine has been distributing Biomass boilers sine the early 2000s. Originally Fink supplied KOB boilers manufactured in Austria. In 2007, KOB was purchased by Viessmann, a large diversified German boiler manufacturer. Viessmann Canada continued to supply the popular Pyrot and Pyrotec boilers to Fink Machine. As part of a move to standardize names Viessmann rebranded the Pyrot and Pyrotec to the Vitoflex 300-RF and Vitoflex 300-UF respectively. In 2020 Mawera took over the biomass division of Viessmann, while the biomass boilers continued to be distributed in North America by Viessmann Canada.


Fink Machine has installed more than 170 boilers totalling over 55 MW of biomass heating capacity, it said. In addition to Mawera Boilers, Fink also distributes the Viessmann Vitoligno residential pellet boilers and Schmid industrial biomass boilers.

Mawera has been building industrial biomass boiler systems for energy production since 1975, it said.
