Nordic is a brand of residential and commercial geothermal and air source heat pumps. The Nordic brand is owned by Maritime Geothermal Ltd, a privately held company located in Petitcodiac, NB, Canada.
Maritime Geothermal Ltd was founded in 1983 by Glenn Kay and his mother Edna. Glenn handled the design and production of the heat pumps while Edna took care of accounting and sales, and together they created the Nordic brand.
