Thermik Gerätebau GmbH was founded by Peter Hofsaess in 1968 in Pforzheim, Germany. He was an inventor (192 patents) and was the first to solve the problem of current self-heating in bimetal switches. From then on it was his goal to develop the world's best and most reliable thermal protectors. Three billion units are currently in use across the world. Meanwhile, Thermik has become an international group of companies with more that 600 employees and four production sites on three continents. Our production space at all sites covers more than 17, 000 m² in total. The company has one of the largest and most innovative product ranges on the market. Today, Thermik holds more patents and industrial property rights in the field of thermal protectors than all its competitors combined. All production plants are equipped with the same kinds of production lines. This means that every Thermik product can be produced and supplied at any Thermik site.
