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.
Since 1924, technical performance, quality, innovation, reliability and customer-oriented service have been defining factors in our success. Three national and four international production facilities, 26 sales organisations around the world, plus partners and agencies in 120 countries translate into a truly global presence for STIEBEL ELTRON. Turnover in 2019 was around 594 million euros net, with approximately 50 percent coming from export.
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. The company relies on over 3,900 employees around the world and their expertise at every stage of development – from the initial design, right through to the manufacture of the final product. 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. There is also a high-tech plant in Eschwege (manufacturing small water heaters, water boilers, hand dryers and thermoplastic components for all appliances produced within the group), as well as a production facility in Freudenberg in North Rine-Westphalia. Four international manufacturing sites: Arvika (Sweden), Poprad (Slovakia), Ayutthaya (Thailand) and Tianjin (China) complete the international manufacturing footprint.
STIEBEL ELTRON started developing systems for using renewable energies in 1976. The company is today one of the leading suppliers of heat pumps for heating, cooling and hot water, as well as ventilation appliances with heat recovery.
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 "Energy Campus" 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.
