Tradition and success of a family business!

All You Can Heat


Hemstedt GmbH was founded in Brackenheim near Stuttgart in 1974. Since then, the company has developed into one of the leading manufacturers of heating cables and cold storage technology products for private and commercial applications. At the beginning of the 1990s, the siblings Andreas Hemstedt and Sabine Hemstedt joined the family business as a tandem and have been active in the management since 2011. Today, the company primarily develops and produces energy-efficient heating systems and holistic concepts that contribute significantly to creating not only the climate-neutral, but even the climate-positive home.

In the field of building and home technology, Hemstedt is the specialist for all areas of electrical heating - from underfloor heating to frost protection. The development of new products incorporates 50 years of experience in areas such as the heating of industrial plants and football stadiums, which have to withstand extreme loads. High quality and special solutions have made Hemstedt known worldwide. The company delivers throughout Europe as well as to the USA, Great Britain, Australia, Turkey, South Africa, Uruguay, China and many other countries. Almost 60 employees work in development, administration and production on an area of around 17,000 square metres.

At Hemstedt, the focus is on the individual. The working environment is familiar, the hierarchies are clear and transparent. Short communication channels help to implement ideas quickly and achieve ambitious goals. Professional and personal qualification programmes offer employees good development opportunities.

One of Hemstedt's declared goals for the year 2030 is to protect the environment and live sustainability. Today, the company is already demonstrably making an important contribution to conserving resources and saving greenhouse gases. In the social sector, Hemstedt is committed to the foundation "Große Hilfe für kleine Helden" (Big Help for Little Heroes), which supports sick children and their families during their inpatient stay at the Heilbronn Children's Hospital, but also in the time afterwards.

Green Product Award - Thinking ahead pays off in a sustainable way!

In March 2019, the GREEN ACCU MAT® was awarded the coveted "Green Product Award" - a prize that honors outstanding, climate-friendly and resource-saving alternatives to existing solutions. A top-class, international jury of scientists, architects and politicians selects from submissions from over 40 countries on all 6 continents! Another major goal of this initiative is the Green Product Network, which brings together established companies with students and start-ups to work together towards a better future. And of course Hemstedt is here! More information about our climate protection heating mats can be found here on the product page.

Industry Award 2018 - Meanwhile a standard at Hemstedt!

In 2018 we got two "Best-Of Industry Awards"! Hemstedt is thus continuing its series of top-class awards and is further expanding its pioneering position not only in the field of highly energy-efficient underfloor heating systems. New is the targeted, demand-regulated wine and fruit growing spring frost protection system HEM-SYSTEM® Wine Frost Control, which was introduced to the market in autumn 2017 after successful field trials. The fact that it immediately wins the "Industry Award" confirms that we have developed an innovative, effective and forward-looking product - just like our environmentally and climate-friendly GREEN ACCU MAT® underfloor storage heater, which now receives the award for the third time.

Top-Innovator 2008 and 2015 - An award which confirms our actions!

Together with mentor Ranga Yogeshwar, "TOP 100" honors every year the 100 most innovative companies of the German SMEs. TOP 100 is already more than 20 years the only benchmark for innovation management in Germany. That means, "TOP 100" awards no individual products, but there are all stages of the innovation process taken under the microscope. 

Professor Nikolaus Franke and his team from the Vienna University of Economics are responsible for the scientific management of the project. 

We are proud that we have received for the second time this prestigious award, as it confirms that we are on our thoughts and actions in the right direction - namely to offer our customers always pioneering innovations to be jointly always one step ahead! 

German industry-price 2014, 2016 and 2018 for our ressource-saving GREEN products!

With our new underfloor heating mats GREEN ELECTRIC MAT® and GREEN ACCU MAT® we have not only created a high-quality product „Made in Germany“ that helps you to heat 100% climate-neutral, but also an outstanding innovative and future-oriented product. 

Proven by the "Industriepreis 2014, 2016 and 2018".

The decision in this competition, which is held regularly since 2006, is made by an independent jury of 30 professors from renowned German universities and research institutions as well as trade journalists and industry representatives. They judge about more than 5,000 submitted products every year. Decisive factors are product maturity and future orientation, but also effective benefits, increasing efficiency and practicality. The requirements of the jury members are clear:

"Innovation means to me that a product or a method distinguishes itself significantly and surprisingly from the known state-of-the-art."

( Prof. Dr. Thorsten M. Buzug, University of Luebeck, Germany )

"An innovative industry solution uses the latest technical and scientific potential, conserves resources, provides new functionality and absolute safety and optimal user-friendliness." 

( Prof. Dr. Rainer Laur, University of Bremen, Germany )

Thus Hemstedt reiterates out from the crowd and proves that good quality combined with trend-setting innovations are the ingredients for customer-oriented, successful products. And that was confirmed the same two years later again by the "Industriepreis 2018."
