Thermik Gerätebau GmbH


Thermik Gerätebau GmbH was founded in 1968 by Peter Hofsaess in Pforzheim. He was the first inventor (192 patents) to solve the problem of the electrical self-heating in bimetal switches. His goal was then to build the best and most reliable temperature limiter in the world. Over 3 billion are already in use around the world today.

Since 1992, the founder’s successors have systematically developed this goal and established Thermik as the technically leading and economically most successful supplier – led by a company founder who has set innovative standards himself with numerous innovations and has repeatedly been listed among the 75 most efficient medium-sized entrepreneurs by Germany’s biggest and most important auditing company.

Thermik Gerätebau GmbH

Thermik is now an internationally operating group with over 600 employees and 4 production sites on 3 continents. The group’s production areas total more than 17,000 m². The company has the largest and most modern range of products in the market. Several new developments are added every year. In the field of temperature limiters, Thermik today has more patents and intellectual property rights than all of its competitors combined. Thermik has won several awards for this and is currently one of the 100 most innovative medium-sized companies in Germany.

All of its production plants are equipped with equivalent production lines today, allowing every Thermik product to be produced and supplied by each Thermik site. Logistics and supply reliability doesn’t get any better than that! It is thus not without reason that numerous market leaders not only recommend the use of Thermik products, but procure 100% of their needs exclusively from Thermik.

Meeting requirements and wishes better than others – day in and day out and year after year – has made Thermik what it is today: the innovation and quality leader for temperature limiters worldwide!
