This brand is from ECR INTERNATIONAL and is available in the USA but only through a limited dealer network. 

The DXL SERIES offers cast iron atmospheric type units with basic features. The XEB series are compact cast iron units with titanium burners for durability and induced combustion. The HELIX VLT (shown here) is a high efficiency (96%) wall hung boiler with built in outdoor reset temperature control for enhanced energy savings. The unit's self-cleaning design and stainless steel heat exchangers ensure long life and continued efficiency. The Q95M-200 model is a floor-standing, modulating, condensing boiler with an AFUE of 95%. The warranty on this brand (especially the heat exchanger) is not very good when compared to other brands.

They are wall mounted modulating high efficiency boilers that feature durable stainless steel heat exchangers and an integrated variable speed pump and expansion tank.
