A company full of energy

Stiebel Eltron is an internationally operating Group and is among the global market and technology leaders in the fields of building services and renewable energies.

For more than 90 years, technical performance, quality, innovation, reliability and customer-oriented service have been defining factors in our success. With five national and international production facilities, 24 sales companies worldwide and sales organisations and agencies in more than 120 countries, Stiebel Eltron has a global presence. More than 40 per cent of the turnover is generated abroad.

In 1924 in Berlin the company founder Dr Theodor Stiebel started realising his vision of developing and manufacturing products with low energy consumption, greater safety and more comfort. This objective still applies to the company today.

As a family-owned company driven by innovation, Stiebel Eltron pursues a clear strategy in the production and development of products – for environmentally friendly, efficient and convenient building services. With more than 3,100 employees worldwide the company places a consistent focus on its own expertise – from product development to production. The result is efficient and innovative solutions for hot water, heat, ventilation and cooling. With its wide range of products Stiebel Eltron always has the right solution to prepare homes for future requirements today. Frank Stiebel and the Stiebel family foundation (set up by Dr Ulrich Stiebel) each own 50% of the company.

Investment in innovation – the STIEBEL ELTRON production facilities

The headquarters of the Stiebel Eltron Group are in Holzminden, which is also home to the largest production facility. Not only is the global administration and sales organisation located here, but also the production of electric hot water heaters, direct heating appliances as well as heat pumps and systems for using renewable energy. A second domestic plant is located in Eschwege, where small water heaters, boiling water appliances, hand dryers and thermoplastic components for all devices made by the Group are produced in a highly automated facility. Three international production facilities: Poprad (Slovakia), Ayutthaya (Thailand) and Tianjin (China) complete the international manufacturing footprint.

Stiebel Eltron started developing systems for using renewable energies 40 years ago. With solutions between five kilowatts and one megawatt, the company is today one of the leading suppliers of heat pumps for heating, cooling and hot water, ventilation appliances with heat recovery and thermal solar heating systems. Photovoltaics round off the product portfolio.

Active support – the STIEBEL ELTRON corporate philosophy

The company has traditionally been geared to the requirements of wholesalers and installation engineers who continue to be in the centre of the company’s philosophy. Stiebel Eltron attaches great importance to actively supporting its partners with trainings, sales promotion measures and services. Retailers, installation engineers and planners can utilize the product support provided by experts at the training academy in Holzminden. In addition, there are six distribution centres in Germany with permanent exhibitions presenting the entire product range – most of them with live demonstration of the systems in action.

Stiebel Eltron is well equipped for the future with an ambitious research, development and investment programme.
