Object detail

Credit line
The company ZIP Industries was acquired by Michael Crouch in 1962, after which it became a water-heater manufacture and is still in business today.
There is no suggestion that the current ZIP Industries makes any heaters asides from water-heating systems. Once upon a time in 1962 however, it was a manufacturer of kitchen and bathroom heaters; this heater possibly comes from that period.
