Clyde Bergemann has become the world leader in on-line boiler cleaning equipment by integrating and enhancing boiler cleaning technologies from around the world. Our product lines combine the experience and knowledge developed over the last 100 years by various independent sootblower brands such as Clyde, Bergemann, Copes Vulcan and Forest.

All this experience has been combined to form the Boiler Efficiency Division of the CBPG to provide boiler operators and manufacturers with optimum solutions for improving boiler efficiencies.
Clyde Bergemann, Inc., the US operation of Clyde Bergemann, was established in 1988 as Bergemann USA, Inc. by Bergemann GmbH, a subsidiary of Deutsche Babcock (later Babcock Power), both German based. Bergemann GmbH - a specialist in cleaning systems for boilers - had been in the boiler cleaning business for several decades.
In 1996 Clyde Blowers PLC of Glasgow/Scotland, which was active in the same market segment, acquired the Bergemann Group and the company was renamed Clyde Bergemann, Inc. Clyde Blowers had been in the boiler cleaning business for many years. In the 1990s the product line was extended into the field of ash handling equipment.
In 1997 Clyde Bergemann Inc. acquired Copes-Vulcan, Inc.'s sootblower product line, a business whose roots date back to 1903 and whose equipment is installed in most of the North American power plants.
