THE THERM-IC STORY
UNBEATABLE TECHNOLOGY & LARGE FAMILY OF PRODUCTS TO SUIT EVERYONE.
Therm-ic has a long history, which began with the invention of heating systems for ski boots. Building on the developments and patented technologies of the last 20 years, our range of products now includes a variety of high-quality solutions in the field of portable heating systems, which are proven to provide warmth.
THE FIRST STEPS
To begin with, they developed a heating device that spread warmth via the insole to the ski boot. A great idea, however, when the external batteries became wet, they stopped working. So, the search for a better solution continued. Over time, ideas improved and so did battery technology. The next development was a heated insole that worked as a barrier to the outside environment and wouldn’t allow cold air inside of the boot. This clever invention could be used in any ski boot – or everyday shoe.
The year was 1998 and Therm-ic was born.
The idea created the first partnerships with big ski boot brands, and our product and brand became known to more and more customers. The insoles and people’s warm feet were often an issue discussed on chairlifts and gondolas – social marketing before Facebook – but we wanted more: more knowledge, more expertise and more warmth.
In cooperation with universities and research departments, we started to get closer to the issue of cold itself: How does it begin? What effects does it have on performance, safety, coordination and balance? What health problems can occur as a result? And, most importantly, how can warmth be kept inside of the body?
We became cold experts, and our know-how was requested more and more often. Our team started talking to people around the world, convincing brands, companies and end-consumers that there was a real solution to cold feet.
Under the leadership of August Stangl, who has a long history at Therm-ic, the brand grew, export started and soon products could be found in 30 countries worldwide. Furthermore, he formed partnerships with big players in the ski, snowboard and work segment.
The growth led to many things like permanent warmth for the hands and feet, insulation for the entire body and care products. In addition to products running on batteries or via Bluetooth, we created environmentally friendly, non-electronic solutions as well.
In 2017, we started a major relaunch, updated our design and logo and presented new products. Now, we are ready for anything that the future brings – like new product developments and partnerships.
Our portfolio consists of patented products for sports and leisure as well as working shoes. Today, Therm-ic cooperates with brands such as Rossignol, Tecnica and K2 when it comes to ski boots as well as the work shoe brand Sievi.
BEING COLD IS NOW A THING OF THE PAST
