The Company

Even if it doesn't always say Eichenauer on the outside - EICHENAUER is usually on the inside!

Our family-run business has been a renowned specialist in the development, production and sale of electrical heating systems for more than 90 years. From our worldwide production sites, we supply our customers all over the world in the areas of Automotive, Household Appliances and Industrial Systems.
In 1925 Fritz Eichenauer senior founded the company of the same name in Kandel, Germany for the manufacture of specialized electrical products. Over the decades, Eichenauer has seen impressive growth and now offers a wide range of products as well as employing more than 500 staff at its various sites.
Then as now, the owner family is involved in managing the company. The daughter of the company’s original founder, Ms. Erika Nolte-Eichenauer, withdrew from active management several years ago, and handed the business over to her daughter Kerstin Stoll and her son-in-law Dr. Manfred Stoll continuing as an third generation family owend and operated business.

“The world we live in today is subject to fundamental changes and technological influences. Wide-ranging inventions across different industries and technologies, both in day-to-day life and in the world of work, require swift innovation on an ongoing basis, making considerable demands of both production processes and staff.
Experience and the determination to be successful combined with a mixture of scientific curiosity on the one hand and technological capabilities and expertise on the other - this is the key to tackling this challenge.

Eichenauer has successfully accomplished the change of generation and is now a stronger market player than ever before.”


Yours sincerely,
