Aristide Merloni established his company (Merloni Industries) in Italy in 1930. In the 1960s, Merloni Industries formed two groups to service specific markets. One of those groups, MTS, focused on heating and sanitation products. In the 1960’s Ariston began manufacturing water heaters and began making boilers in the 1980’s. Through the 1990’s and into the 21st century MTS aquired several companies and brands, and in 2009 MTS Group changed its name to Ariston Thermo Group. Ariston moved to a new UK headquarters in 2014.
