Thermamax Review 2017

2017 was a year marked by many exciting changes which we'd like to tell you about.

In addition to the transfer of ownership of the Thermamax Group, we have also expanded our production space and celebrated the 10th anniversary of the founding of our sister company, Thermamax ,Inc. It was a year marked by many exciting changes which we'd like to tell you about.

Capvis acquires majority shareholding in the Thermamax Group

The takeover of the Thermamax Group by Capvis Equity Partners AG is a sign of further development. The new financial and strategic partnership not only offers long-term benefits to Thermamax, but also to our customers. Processes and structures will be further developed on a sustainable basis and the product range expanded. Read more about the cooperation.

Capacity expands with a new Production Hall

Thermamax has made an important investment for growth with the expansion of production facilities in Mannheim. Since March 2017 the new hall has been mainly providing insulation systems on turbochargers
for the automobile industry. By centralizing all necessary process steps in one area, all material flows and processes can be optimized and production quality and a reliable delivery guaranteed. Further information here.

Happy Birthday Thermamax, Inc.!

It's exactly 10 years ago that we began to tell the success story of our company in the USA. The Aurora (Illinois) location specialized first in the production of prototypes and low-volume series production. Production space has been doubled in the meantime and the range of foil products and insulation enclosures for medium-sized and large engines extended. 2017 saw a change in management with added emphasis on faster throughputs and lower transport costs to meet customer expectations. Have a look at our success story.

Tmax-Insulation for E-Transport

Thermamax has developed a thermal insulation system for the innovative and trend-setting Range-Extender concept for charging electric vehicles when on the move. Three different Tmax insulation technologies have been used for different elements of the system. The safety solution from Thermamax can withstand temperatures up to 900 °C. The concept Range + from MTEE (Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V.), was presented at the recent IAA PKW show 2017. Have a look here into the future.

Thermamax as a force for the future at AGRITECHNICA

With the slogan "Ready for the Future" Thermamax presented it's market-leading insulation technologies for maximum Fire Protection at the AGRITECHNICA 2017 show in Hanover. The main features were:
    | Tmax-Insulation Cladding for maximum safety
    | Tmax-Integral Insulation for an efficient exhaust gas aftertreatment
    | Tmax-SONETHERM for effective noise reduction
Thermamax also presented it's new simulation service. The combination of many years experience backed up by computer-aided engineering now allows the testing and evaluation of concepts long before the need for producing prototypes. This means engine manufacturers can develop production-ready products quicker and more cost-effectively. See more of our exhibits.

We're running on "top form"

An unbelievable 20% of the Thermamax workforce took part in the Gruendel's Company Run in Mannheim. For that motivation there was an extra special trainer on hand. The management had provided the two-time Hawaii-Ironman winner Normann Stadler. And our team responded with second prize in the "Creative" competition for the best team entry.
