Business Description


Strix Group Plc is a global leader in the design, manufacture and supply of kettle safety controls and other components and devices involving water heating and temperature control, steam management and water filtration.

Strix’s core product range comprises a variety of safety controls for small domestic appliances, primarily kettles. Kettle safety controls are responsible for disconnecting the power to the heating element when either water has boiled, operated with no water present, or in some products when the kettle is lifted off its base. The kettle control is also designed to act as a safety device, disconnecting the power during abnormal operations such as when there is no water in the appliance, to prevent the element from overheating.

Through investments in key acquisitions and R&D, the group also innovates technologies in the Small Domestic Appliance and Water Filtration segments, where it brings its technologies to market through its own consumer brands and with key brand partners around the world.

Strix operates globally: in the Isle of Man (where the Group’s head office is located), UK, Hong Kong, China, Italy, Australia and New Zealand, and has manufacturing operations in four locations: Ramsey in the Isle of Man, Guangzhou in China, Vicenza in Italy, and Melbourne in Australia.
