About Thermaflex North East Europe

Close to half of the energy produced on this planet is used for heating and cooling and still most of it is generated by burning fossil fuels. That makes the vision of Thermaflex absolutely clear:

“Minimize the waste of energy and maximize the use of renewables.”

Thermaflex is a leading provider of smart, and sustainable distribution solutions for thermal energy. Our by nature inspired design for efficiency, durability and recyclability demands a minimum of resources for maximum benefit in respect to energy, economy, environment and quality of life. Thermaflex works closely together with its stakeholders to develop new innovations that meet the needs of today, and tomorrow.

Starting out in 1976 in the Netherlands, this family-run business has grown to be an international player with 5 production facilities and 16 sales and support offices worldwide, making a positive impact in over 45 countries worldwide.

In Poland, Thermaflex started in 1992 as the first company in the Polish market in polyolefine-based solutions for the installation industry. Starting as a sales and distribution office, the highly successful market entry quickly saw the construction of a production plant in Żarów, near Wroclaw. Since 2008, Thermaflex North-East Europe has especially grown as a key player in this insulation market.

Global threats such as climate change, resource scarcity and ecosystem health are our long term strategy drivers. We act on that strong passion through safe, recyclable and future-proof solutions together with our stakeholders. To be a B-corp means that we can better convey those values and inspire others to follow suit by using business as a force for good, and leave a positive social, and environmental impact.

The Change We Seek®

In the early days, thermal energy production and consumption were highly localized, based on local needs, available resources, limited technology and lower levels of comfort. With the discovery of fossil fuels this all changed dramatically. Yet it has now become very clear this shift is far from sustainable, nor equitable.

Today the world increasingly strives for improving energy efficiency as well as searching of renewable alternatives. That is driving the development of both production and use of energy. Yet as energy sources diversify, provisions once again becoming more and more localized. In theory, everyone has the choice to become an energy supplier. Yet, whether on individual or community level, it is vital that the available capacities and fluctuating demands can be collectivized and well connected.

In co-creation with its stakeholders, Thermaflex looks for smart energy solutions, gradually building for a common future and flexibly adapting to new circumstances and challenges. From generating ideas, through testing of prototypes to successful implementation. Thermaflex’ ‘high-energy’ team across the globe attaches a great deal of importance to working together to co-create substantial progress in this regard.

With Cradle to Cradle-certified components, Thermaflex North-East Europe is on a journey to fully recycle its products and only make use of safe, reliable and sustainable materials.
