About Us

We believe that electricity will be the energy of the future. By 2050, the share of electric power generated from renewable resources is to increase to 80 per cent. Electricity will thus become the most environmentally friendly form of energy. We want to contribute to this welcome development by manufacturing modern, high-quality electric heating systems that are highly efficient, enabling consumers to move away from fossil sources of energy.

Apart from our commitment to climate protection, we want to make sure that people are warm and cosy – at home and at the workplace. Heat generated by electric heaters is particularly comfortable, as these heaters do not only warm up the air around them, but any object in their vicinity. In comparison with conventional radiators, heat from electric heaters has only a minimum effect on air humidity and brings less dust into the air. To ensure that our customers benefit from all the advantages of modern electric heating technology, we develop and manufacture heaters that are not only of the highest quality and attractive, but also customisable.

A History of Innovation

ELKATHERM® was established in 1954 in Montabaur in the Westerwald region in the west of Germany. In the early 1960s, ELKATHERM® launched a portable tiled stove known as the ELKAMAT, which could be run with solid fuel as well as electric power. This innovative and patented product was a milestone in the success story of the company.

Over the following years, ELKATHERM® became one of the leading manufacturers of electric heaters, fireplaces and stoves. Its product range has been constantly expanding and includes night time storage heaters, charcoal stoves, tiled electric stoves, electric fireplaces and other electric installations.

Since 1991, ELKATHERM® has been under the leadership of the Henrich family. In 2003, Klaus-Peter Henrich handed over the company to his son Lars, who has continued investing in R&D and quality. Today, ELKATHERM® is one of the few manufacturers of electric heaters whose products are VDE-certified.

A Commitment to Quality

Quality and innovation are central to our core values. Engineering technology and precision manufacturing are hallmarks that set ELKATHERM® apart from the mass market of cheap, low value, short term products.
