Medium-sized enterprises form the backbone of the German economy. They are known for their ability to engineer the highest-quality solutions and many are hidden champions in a wide range of industries. We have helped Schwank, one of Germany’s industryleading companies to create the next generation of user friendly products.
Gunther Schwank, the founder of the eponymous company, invented the world’s first gas infrared plaque heater over 80 years ago. Since then, Schwank has grown to become a medium-sized enterprise and the worldwide market leader in infrared gas heaters for industrial buildings, outdoor applications and sports arenas. But what does the future hold for them?
In industrial buildings, there is an increased need for more efficient heating systems. Looking forward, Schwank has developed a new generation of extremely energy- efficient gas-fired radiant tube heater. Efficiency is the main consideration when choosing a heating system and design plays a large part in creating a competitive advantage and added value. User-friendly interfaces reduce frustration and time spent on installation, repairs and maintenance, while providing a more enjoyable user experience. This increases customer loyalty and is a large selling point when comparing to competitors.
